Artist's Statement

My paintings are a reflection in the search for ways to produce the loss of integrity, of globalization, the lack of security, complexity and the mutation of the values in the world today, so confusing, fragmented, and indecipherable.
I explore the sense of our time, the transcendence of human being, the polarities of these ideas : Destruction and rebirth, glory and shame, sin and redemption.
My paintings are visual meditations of a internal and individual vision.
I like the light, the inner light of being that connects to the light of consciousness that is universal. My paintings are my tool for survival, reflecting perhaps, the passage of time when life hurts to walk the years.
It's like trying to paint a poem on each painting….but in spite of everything, always encourages me in the hope of finding the light in each step.
The only thing that is important to me is to continue working.
