ARTIST PROCESS + STATEMENT

My paintings are guided by the textures that transit around me, my way of understanding the world is preferably kinesthetic, through that receiving capacity which we have on the skin, porous membrane that allows us to perceive, emit, discover, get to know and explore another living being or element, the sense of touch is never absent, and it is in these sensations that creativity awakens in me in casting that emotion into a tangible shape, a characteristic setoff and a color that defines it, it is exploring the weavings, the live wood, the heavy seawater and the lightness of a river’s fresh water, the silkiness of the petals, the fresh earth and the fine sand, the soft touch of a bird’s feather the endlessness of sensations to which I am exposed, where my works are created composed with soft and delicate or thick and strong strokes and texture setoffs that highlight all those shapes of life on a canvas.

I paint with a certain degree of urgency to communicate what happens in my inner world being the shapes, the textures and the colors the language which I prefer to manifest my thoughts, emotions and experiences, as I consider my works an extension of my own being, which necessarily must be done with my hands, because it is in the memory of my sense of touch where the work is snuggled up, awaiting to be born to be felt by others, watched and fulfill the desire which it was made for: to communicate and it is when the spectator reacts when the magic happens, because in some way we will be connected by a mutual language, while the glimpse of contemplation lasts.
