Liza is interested in photography with performative and cinematographic gestures, alluding to the pictorial archive and the documentary, in search of adding a humanistic response to psychological, biological and mystical mysteries. These journeys derive from the author’s need to resolve her personal history through the accidental relations that arise during her lifetime.
Her texts are a syncretic construction based on instants of the reality of his life (flash-backs). She is committed to finding the nightmare, the monstrous and the magical in the everyday. Her work revolves around mental states of tension that have disturbed her for long periods of life and which in turn connects to contemporary social problems.
Maintaining a deep bond between one’s own feelings as a reflection of others and on return. Trying to explain his existential and psychic journey. While trying to read topics such as the difficulty of female consanguineous relationships, the perverse of the familiar and the spirituality of art as a method of personal liberation.
