Whether through personal experience, media or artistic exposure, the human form has directly informed my work. I gravitate towards figurative painting and drawing due to my struggle with identity, not just in terms of artistic approach, but what it means to be human and a first generation Mexican American living in a contentious U.S / Mexico border. My artistic endeavors gravitate and rise to reflect my inner struggle and the perilous dichotomy of my identity.
I am interested in persona and the aesthetic design that correlates with those qualities. Color, line, and texture question and reinforce ethnic and cultural backgrounds, while also addressing social fears and trepidations.
