Artist's Statement

My first inspirations with precious metals derive from my personal heritage that is intimately involved with both pre-Columbian gold and shamanism. Those traditions inspired in me an impetus to create, in the belief that the glitter of gold and silver and, the vibrancy of color, transmit a magical and fertilizing energy to humanity. My research in both traditions brought me to a fascination with the dynamism of monochrome metallic surfaces. The findings allow me to codify and translate my work into a new metaphysics of the painted surface and toward a new form of abstraction. This abstraction is embodied in the optically perceived phenomena of the pictorial surface. Ambient light, colors, shapes and movements continuously morph into an ever-changing, ever-captivating imagery. Indeed these works can spark, inspire and give both energy and calmness to the viewer.
