About The Artwork

This evocative ceramic sculpture represents two figures, standing side by side, their forms reminiscent of weathered, ancient monoliths. The textured surface, marked with deep grooves and a cascade of blackened glaze, suggests a rugged exterior — a visual metaphor for the complexities and occasional harshness found within human interactions. The wires protruding from the top, resembling wild, untamed branches, further express a sense of discord and tension, as if capturing the dynamic of a relationship enduring through the trials of disagreement and strife. Despite the suggestion of conflict, the figures remain connected, their shared base a testament to an underlying unity. This piece speaks to the resilience of bonds between individuals, honoring the strength required to weather the storms of connection and the beauty that can be found within imperfection.

My artistic journey converges at the intersection of the abstract and the figurative, bridging an essential gap between the seen and the felt. I create using a versatile palette of mediums including painting and digital art, while also venturing into the tangible, earthy world of ceramics. My art becomes a multilingual conversation about people, places, and objects, encapsulating not only their physical essence but also the subjective lens of my own emotional response. Color and form serve as my fundamental tools, shaping the dialogue of my work and molding the emotional ambiance of each piece. I harness these elements to explore my internal landscape, each artwork becoming a mirror of my personal feelings, a reflection of self presented for shared experience. Over the years, I have found inspiration and guidance in the principles of Japanese aesthetics, namely Wabi-sabi, Shibui, and Geidō. These concepts, which I've honed through practices such as Japanese Calligraphy, Bonsai, and Iaido, shape my artistic process, infusing each creation with an essence of tranquility and refined simplicity. The lineage of my work traces back to the influences of the Abstract Expressionism, Matterism, and Color Field movements. The echoes of artists like Antoni Tàpies, Barnett Newman, Jean Fautrier, Paul Klee, and Mark Rothko ripple through my pieces, adding depth to my distinct voice. My art is also an homage to the architectural aesthetics that have left their mark on me. From the innovative Modernist structures of the 1950s and 1960s in Mexico City by Luis Barragán and Juan O’Gorman, to the timeless allure of colonial and contemporary architecture in Mexico City and Oaxaca, their influence permeates my work. In the same breath, I draw from the minimalist yet profound designs of Japanese architect Tadao Ando. My art is a journey of exploration and introspection. It is a dialogue between abstract emotion and tangible reality, an amalgamation of influences that shape and refine my unique artistic language. Each piece is not merely a reflection of the world, but an intimate revelation of how I perceive and feel it.
