Artist's Statement:
My Artwork is a reflection of my necessities, both spiritual and terrestrial, to express experiences that fill me with courage and ideas that haunt me. The elements that I use are witnesses of the eternal search for that spirituality that has gotten lost in time. That gap is the fluid that fuels that motor, bringing common objects and animals into a magical world of balance and rhythm. I don’t deny the influences of the masters of old; instead I stand on their shoulders paraphrasing their ideas and techniques. The elements in my images are a mixture of European and Native American symbology. The artwork becomes a half blooded entity that claims its own space, its own land. Often, the work comes from explorations of my own cultural identity. In addition, I am intrigued by time, transfigurations of the spirit and different reflections of states of being. The many changes and variations of my artwork denote my preoccupation with the search of the “one voice”. I mean the true search of an ultimate individuality like that of our personalities: unique, complicated. My work shows the maturity of my concepts, of my images and my techniques. The result does not belong to a style or movement but is a type of work that lacks a category or current but it encompasses them all.
