Artist's Statement

During the past four years I have made five new installations that are part of a series in which I’m referencing the urban environment and modern architecture in Puerto Rico. I have continued to explore the relationship between the individual and his environment, the dialogue with a specific architectural context and the active or physical engagement between the viewer and the work. Although my work consist mostly of sculpture and installations, in my recent work I have added photography as a document while using sculpture or painting as a tool to interpret or define a specific location as I perceive it. photography enables me to document the environment as I travel through the city, while in contrast the other media I use are the result of a more exhaustive study of the environment and its context. By doing this I confront positions and languages in order to generate new interpretations or perceptions of place.
