Art as a whole has been and is a medium to translate thoughts, expressions, emotions, and beliefs in a way no words can formulate or express. We dialogue through these works our social, political, and cultural issues of the past, present, and even future. We are able to construct and deconstruct ideals, dogmas, beliefs, and traditions. To be an artist is not an exclusive group of privileged peoples, but is an innate drive we all have within us. To create is part of our human nature.
In my works I enjoy working with flow and movement. Abstract, fluid forms composed of aggressive hard edges mixed with fluid, feminine forms. I enjoy exploring the unknown and unexplainable, metaphysical, and multidimensional.
I also often like to explore the cynical and ironic sides of subjects, as well as emphasizing on the duality of nature. I like to be able to transform in my pieces things to be considered bizarre and grotesque into works of wonderment and awe. I enjoy creating robotic insects, biomechanical and strange otherworldly creatures.
Most of my work is based on intuition and I allow the piece to take form as it so desires. Some pieces, on the other hand start as a vision, next translating onto paper, and finally to the finished product. Mistakes and detours usually abound. This I allow to become part of the process and a critical element of the outcome. Some of my best pieces have come into fruition after I have relinquished all control and surrendered to the will of the piece.
I work with various mediums ranging from acrylic paintings to metal sculptures. I have also spent much time working with textiles, creating designs for t-shirts and doing custom made designs for hats.
My interest in art started in my childhood creating sketches of tanks, robots and battle scenes to pass the time in the classroom. Later my interest in art evolved into graffiti and murals. I then started exploring many other forms of art. Up until six years ago, I had been focusing primarily on two dimensional works. Now I am excited to be expanding to the three dimensional world of art. My subjects have been slowly evolving over the years from a dark, cynical sense of humor to a lighter, more metaphysical, spiritual base.
Thanks for looking and keep posted for more exciting new works to come!
