Artist Statement

"The merging of contradictions is a delightful idea. there is a strong  seduction  from the thought of distorting anything that stands as concrete and evident; to destroy elements and rebuild them in harmonious images. Drawing and painting in various medias are the ongoing and evolving techniques This is what I love to adapt in my work, this is the spectrum of my graphical and symbolic expressions.

Within my work I take into account the beauty found in the language related to rational thinking, and the emotional thrust that I find in the appreciation of animal life around me.

In growing up with a mother who is mathematician, I developed a visual interest in the use of structural forms. We humans study the cosmos as we search for beauty and attempt to define it through numbers and equations.

In the end I want to bring together both worlds into one image where I wish to evoke an appreciation between the viewer and the many forms of life present, I believe we all have a deep responsibility and connection with the natural world surrounding our existence.
