Artist Statement

This statement is not intended to be a conventional one by any means. Maybe it’s the language barrier or it could be I am just not good expressing myself in words. Perhaps that’s the main reason I am an Artist, so I could express my point of view in a more visual way. My latest collection is titled “Therapy”, because that is literally what my work has been for me for the last several months. It has taken me out of the dark. After having the most traumatic experience of my life at the end of last year, I felt lost and empty. Nothing was making any sense. During that incredibly hard time I remained calm, composed and strong. That was what my family needed. But after coming back to where I now call home, America, the loss and emptiness left its toll on me.... big time. For months I kept having the same nightmare. I could not work, or for that matter, function at all. The color in my work was gone. So, in a way, this new collection has saved me. It shows all I had inside and could not express in any other way. They are strong, soulful, colorful pieces. They are order in chaos. They are my most personal work ever, and on top of that I am having the time of my life.
