Artist Statement

Artist Statement

¨Chaos is a friend of mine¨

Bob Dylan

The Idea

At present, my art work is based on the balance between unknown and uncontrollable chaos and geometry, perspective, order, harmony, equilibrium and the beauty of color. The work explores the relationship between the light and form, colors and textures. I first internalize this fusion and re-codification in a playful process in order to generate a language of personal communication that is filled with aesthetic and dreamlike sensations. This enables me to express the fears and misgivings that humankind faces today. My works reflect the contrast of a chaotic and visually-contaminated world with the purity of natural beauty.

The Game

My day-to-day activity in the studio, and my work as an artist, put me in a state of alertness, and, simultaneously, of relaxation wherein everything flows as in an intimate exercise of pure enjoyment and anguish that results in the creation of an art object, be it a painting or a sculpture. The creative process in me is filled with worries and interests that affect me personally. From the very beginning, my work has been a tool for introspection that has allowed me to navigate between my emotions, my obsessions, and my internal conflicts, all of which end up transformed into art.
