I am inspired by Energy - The one of Creativity - The one that God Created.
As an artist and architect I work compositions that integrate natural landscapes, architectural perceived surroundings and elements that seem to radiate spacial vitality. artistically compromised + architecturally charged, the art represents a resilient creative energy that exists in constant Flux. The art is fluid and occupied with vigorous strokes attempting to exhibit a healing energy inside settings of perpetual activity. Inside my art, the artist and the architect fight to coexist attempting to reconcile a dilemma posed by the intensity of two energizing cultures – Latin and North American – presenting environments that suggest that all nature belongs to no one and everyone at the same time. Ultimately the art urgently proposes an output of architectural sustainability by presenting dream like images suggesting worlds of livelihood and Hope. As a brain cancer conqueror I paint about survival, work and dream as I intend to give back a creative therapy of feeling and painting dreams.
I was born in Barquisimeto, Venezuela where I lived until the age of nineteen and then moved to the United States. I attended art and architecture schools before relocating to the USA and eventually received a master’s degree in Architecture from The University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. I have produced art works and practiced architecture in the metropolitan area of Detroit and currently live and work in Chelsea, MI, California as an artist and designer.
I work in acrylic on canvas and fiberboard using modeling paste, graphite, pencils, and pastels as well as found objects for my architectural assemblies. Additionally, I find inspiration in Christianity, textures and languages found in Mother Nature, progressive rock and new age music and human emotions. The art is tectonic, thorny and visually alive.
