When I saw the Mexican Embassy building in Berlin for the first time, I was overwhelmed by its size and translucency. From the outside, kept quite simple, I was surprised by the sheer size of the room inside. The white walls shone and seemed infinite. I immediately felt the desire to see my work there in order to check and experience its effect in such a room. I was pleased when a collaboration with the Mexican sculptor Alejandro Saldaña resulted and we both made the plan to organize an exhibition in the Mexican Embassy. The good preparation together had paid off. I was impressed by the effect of the interplay of my paintings with Alejandro’s sculptures and the expanse of the premises and the lighting conditions. I thank Alejandro and the Mexican Embassy for the wonderful collaboration.
In retrospect, I am impressed that I was able to master moving out of the University of Arts (UdK) to my own studio, moving privately to a new apartment and organizing and running this exhibition in anticipation of the birth of my little daughter Xochi.
