These two pieces were the result of processing some of the things around my life lately (as usual). My sister's pregnancy, James Bond (my son's latest obsession), Easter eggs, marbles, the current nice weather, and who knows what else is behind the curtains in my unconscious mind.
Funny process...it's like a food processor (another thing in my life) in which you add all these things, plus accidental or planned colour combinations, a little of trial and error, and my luggage (or lifetime experiences), and you never know what you'll get. Sometimes everything works around an idea though, but it's always a surprise anyways. At least for me. No wonder art can be so exciting; this creative act keeps everything going on ...and on...
These are my new ones. They have nothing in common as you can tell. My art has always been quite experimental; I guess that's why the results are usually different. As I take a route, I get distracted by another, and so and so. My paintings rarely end up being what I planned first. The surprise element is so important to me...sometimes I feel the piece "paints" itself, or that there's somebody else behind it. I can clearly see the influences of my daily experiences and the things I like in them, but the structure or "grammar" of my pieces comes to life the moment I create them. I guess that's why art is so important to me. I never know what I will get, and it helps me explore and reveal my unconscious mind.
I never grew up at all. A playful, incurably hopeful spirit of a child still lives me and sets himself free through my art. Still amused by everything around, my spirit filters my everyday, present and past experiences through an almost spiritual process where all the elements arrange themselves into abstract compositions. These compositions express and show feelings and sensations as I perceive them, not in the way a photographic camera does. Colours, shapes, textures, sound, movement, and the language behind them...They all turn into layers of paper and vinyl that cover and uncover at the same time through little "windows" that reveal a background, allowing the viewer to penetrate and travel through them, in and out, and to inquire about what's hidden behind them. All this process allows me to rediscover myself everytime I create, on and on, in a constant evolution and search for myself.
Welcome home and please be patient with my grammar...English is my second language! You can write to me in Spanish as well. See you around !
