Artist Statement

It’s about the search, how to understand circumstance.

The mistery of why it is.

Where it takes you and how it teaches you: reflexion and prayer.

To curb the anxiety of navigating the uncertain nothingness.

The catharsis to heal the inability to belong.

Flying myself, detaching the human skin.

Finally thru disposition and acción come to a device ( painting/object) that

comunes with everybodies flesh underneath the skin.
