Artist Statement about his current collection (under creation):
"This process is guided by water as a healing medium. It defines movement and finger strokes on each form constructed and developed as it passes from a dry state. After this metamorphoses, I then take colored fabric creating a space that breaks a commonality and provides floating spaces, where the viewer can journey into their own imagination perceiving their own world within.
I use water as the Goddess that came before the violence and ambition that arose in Spanish America. In order to experience their meaningful healing and relaxing technique brought from human suffering and elemental living, one must experience this, almost magical event.
I use rivers with their expanded spaces, large and plentiful with their variety of shapes and colors to recreate their contexts.
The colors are not made to drift, but have a sense that seems to ask and bring forth their own meaning within the bodies of water, tones of the days past, the color of wind, light intensity, the souls of human beings plus meaningful abstractions bringing forth the meaning of life, of sounds, pain, also colors dissolving in water attracting happiness, inviting us to look into our very being, to meet our own souls within.
This metamorphous produces a pattern of colors and shapes that float and call to a visual tranquility, as its' transformational gift from the water itself becomes the observer for the benefit of the onlooker."
