My work is an analysis of the interaction of juxtaposed elements as they coexist in our society. I attempt to create cohesion among the opposing forces to bring forth a state of zen, as I explore topics questioning social-economic paradoxes.
I was born and raised in the humble streets of Caricuao, a district of Caracas, Venezuela. In 1995 I migrated to the United States in search of the coveted American Dream. Growing up, I worked hard to adapt to my new home without losing sight of my roots. The internal struggle of bridging cultural differences without undermining either one’s significance, created the foundation for my work.
My paintings exhibit a comparison of similarities by gradually altering the values of complementary colors to demonstrate their uniform change in properties. In contrast, I highlight the differences by using two distinct paint applications as I apply opposing hues. I build structures through the abstraction of complex architectural forms into core geometric shapes to juxtapose against gestural, nature-like, free forms.
