“Being a first generation Cuban-American, I use cultural color fields, as well as the aesthetics of street art to explore how one’s upbringing is directly influenced by ethnic heritage. By exploring the dualities between heritage and environment, the abstract chaos of my foundation layers builds an intense tactile landscape while my geometric qualities are a direct relation of the concrete jungle around me.
This work explores how we may be able to accurately record and express our experiences through memories. I commonly juxtapose the stenciling of parallelograms creating spacial, three-dimensional and atmospheric spaces. Throughout the development of my work, the clarity of my forms in connection with the dense, tactile layers of bleeding physically controlled but visually chaotic drippings creates such a vivid duality rich of action and construction.”
