In my paintings, I find elements typical of my country, specifically food and wine, that are representative of my radiant positivity and love for life. My hyperrealism improves upon reality, showing it clearly and cleanly. The viewer feels they can pull the food from the canvas to dirty their lips with a pastry or stain their dress with a few drops of wine. My technique, oil on canvas, is aimed at a faithful representation of the subject without exasperating detail and instead letting imagination complete the visual excitement, flavor, and tastes that my paintings suggest.
