"My medium in the design is always classic. Already in the primer I make sure that I use, for example, a chalk base for glazing technique. I work according to traditional painting techniques. I follow the same principle with the drawings on handmade paper or the ceramics. So the tension of my work is not created by experimenting with the medium itself but by the content of what I present and the combination of how I put it together. Of course, I still ask myself formal questions, for example, I move in a very reduced color spectrum, I work serially and like the installative moment of objects in combination with painting or drawings." - Lena Valenzuela
 

"My theme is always the human being, currently the woman, or more precisely the Western white woman. I make fun of the privileges in a way in the hope that the viewer associates with it and can laugh about it. Clearly I am part of this world, even though I have Chilean roots, I grew up here. The biggest formal challenge for me is the balancing act between clichés, kitsch and symbolism to the traditional art history. I tell a lot, but I still want to leave room for questions. There are definitely also dark moments in the work, because on a second level I am also concerned with the transience of life. So the break from the very pastel romantic subject is important to me, which is why my characters always have something ghostly about them. But they are sympathetic ghosts." - Lena Valenzuela
