"WORLDS" may first provoke associations with many things; however, I choose, to create my own connotations of the word that attract the audience, crowding of elements and ideas, a jumble of thoughts and chaos.
Color and brushstrokes play with a commotion, which undermines, The aesthetic composition also plays in the altarpiece of life in its religious and theatrical context.
I intervene in small spaces in different formats with a wide range of colors, three-dimensional shapes that recall the scenic. Art Nouveau brings the tropical Caribbean here. The influence of pop art and the theatrical.
All representations finally explore nature, androgyny and dominant fertility; that resists any interpretation, religious, affective, traditional and ideological; hiding cathartic effects.
I appropriate religious iconography, legends and myths that I recreate their foundations, staging plural components.
