Faithful to my Latin American roots, my work takes the viewer into the world of magic realism and color.
I am interested in tapping into the emotional and spiritual reservoirs within me believing that it manifests our individual and collective unconscious. The act of painting is meditative and mystical. I am ruled by my imagination which it is woven with reality, myth, magic, and fantasy. I embark into each painting aiming to communicate a journey in color and images.
An object becomes symbolic of a dream, a memory, a fiber of my imagination. My attention to painting is that of a focused researcher utilizing my inner dialogue and the connection with the world around me as the library from where to bring forward images. My choice of medium is oils because of their sensual quality, brightness, and warmth that allows me to work on layers from dark to light.
I intend to challenge the viewer into a contemplative dialogue with the painting and be absorbed by its colors, images, and light. In that viewing the painting may evoke a feeling, an emotion, a memory, a dream, and/or a fantasy.
