My paintings strive to merge abstraction, figurative elements and the origin of culture and its influence. Each component translates in the work through layering, color and depth, seeking a unique perspective to approach the practice of art.
Between art and science is the most recent body of work that explores figurative elements to elaborate the development of culture. I intend for the viewer to be hovered over the painting, looking into scientific structures through an abstract composition, layering, texture and color. I direct the viewer by creating a visual language that dissects abstraction through the means of science. The visual language is articulated with different layers of strokes and color, revealing the nature of my practice. The colors, along with being aesthetic, create an energy that mirrors the brushstrokes and creates a sense of depth. For each work, I used human tissue samples (digitalized from slides) as the base for an abstract composition. This is the science behind the Art, which implies a deeper connection between the individual and their origin (cultural background). With compositions based from human tissue samples, I aim to link the relationship between the body and the place of origin (culture).
My paintings bring to attention the moments of interruption, often using bold, vividly colored strokes to contrast fluid motions. This is the ideal place of focus for the viewer, since it implies the importance of a counter movement in an abstract work.
