artist statement

I consider myself an artist for it is through art that I express my Self and, like a snake biting its tail, it is through art that I explore my inner Self. Making art is the means by which I justify and mystify my existence, and discover the universe around me and within me. I believe art to be a powerful instrument for shaping culture and, therefore, a vehicle for change. I believe that art can change the world — and it is in fact changing it!

My art practice is highly personal and process oriented. Some of the themes I explore through art are consciousness, the human body, identity, dreams, personal history and ancestry.

Experimentation in many different mediums has been a part of my life from a young age. As a child I painted, built wooden toys, made sculptures from plasticine, and took dance and music lessons.

This early experience with art was very influential, and as a young adult I pursued a formal education in painting and photography from the National Center for the Arts in Mexico City.

Moving slowly from representational imagery to abstract painting and collage, I integrated my visual findings into my photography, scratching and bending the negatives to create an aged and textured appearance.
