Artist Statement

Born in Monterey, Nuevo Leon, I started painting in Mexico City. My first works were in oil and acrylic, slightly influenced by cubists and abstract artists like Manuel Felguerez and Jackson Pollock. Throughout my career I have developed different techniques of figurative design and abstract art. I currently reside in Rockville, MD. My work stems from my love for life and it reveals the most intimate corners of my existence. Passion and sensibility are the main topographies of my inner self and they can be perceived in each brushstroke. I reveal and dissolve myself in each one of my creations through an intense cathartic experience. As my life has been marked by a merciless episode of wrenching suffering, my art became my ultimate hope for liberation. I found and restored myself from the ashes of my life’s bitter agony through my art. I found and cherished love and happiness instead of sourness and depression through my art. The shades of red are not only frequent in my works, but also have a profound significance. Symbolizing love and pain in the same time, red is calid and dark, sweet and intense. In my works, red signifies profound inner peace. Earthy colors are also frequently found on my palette, bringing the temporal dimension of “here and now” to my creations.
