In my paintings I seek to capture the idea of the instantaneous and the invisible of everyday life. I feel like a pictorial photographer, I think of the works as frames of a cinematographic sequence. I am interested in painting the essence of the moment, what is not seen, capturing what is in people sitting, lying down, sleeping, thinking, sad, that intimacy is what attracts me, in each painting I try to immortalize the sensation that runs through the scene.


When I paint, the action of  comes to me, immersing myself in water, in the wateriness of the painting itself. What separates the surface of the water and the surface of the air, when one is submerged, is a two-dimensional and abstract separation surface that cannot be seen but can be measured. This point of union between one surface and another is what I am interested in working on: between figuration and geometrization, between coherence and incoherence. I think of it as a healing act, both immersing yourself in the water and immersing yourself in the paint.


A poet who writes verses with her body, that 's how Aku defines herself. As a multidisciplinary artist, she manages to connect writing with bodily expression in her creative process. Oscillating from words to movement and from movement to words, the foundation of her work is bodily poetry. 


Her production mainly materializes in video and photography, but also uses other mediums/ supports. The work is always born from a score sheet that is organized in three moments: research, meditation, improvisation, and recording.


The ways in which Aku expresses herself arise from her passion for approaching life with all senses awake and from her formal education in visual arts, dance, performing arts, writing, bodily expression, and other artistic disciplines. 

The rhetoric proposed in her work is an invitation to think and dialogue from corporeality, symbolism, and metaphor. She understands that through the body, it is possible to build a narrative and awaken the most sensitive fiber of those who engage with it. The subtlety of touch, the prickling of the skin, a deep breath, an intense gaze, the hands and feet in gentle motion, compose poetry, erect a lyric that is unique and constitute her artwork.
