Through the engaging dialogue of paint and all of its physical properties my art plumbs physical and spiritual realms, influences of Meso-American mythologies, and traditions, the collision of abstraction and representational forces all the while holding close, painting as a tactile poetic adventure.
The specific areas of my process intersecting the avenues of drawing and watercolor form as a connective media that feeds all my oil painting activities. All realms of my thematic interests hold together in oil paintings rich with the variations of thin and thick application processed through a myriad of creative and destructive cycles. These tidal forces of creation, destruction, and back again as creation, in my art bring forth the soul and physical visions in each work.
My painterly discoveries have allowed me to become more sensitive to light and color. I have developed a keener eye to the signals discovered in each new work, and it is my aim to continue to push the physical boundaries of the paint and elevate the spiritual realms that exists in painting.
“Abstraction allows [the artist] to see with [their] mind what [he/she] cannot see physically with [their] eyes…. Abstract art enables the artist to perceive beyond the tangible, to extract the infinite out of the finite. It is the emancipation of the mind. It is an exploration into unknown areas.” -Arshile Gorky
“I paint for my own astonishment.” -Roberto Echaurren Matta
