There is comfort on the repetition of patterns and color that has always sparked a great deal of interest in me. The impression on the subconscious of colors and shapes becoming one of my passions.
At the core of my work there is a pursuit of the use of color and its intricacies. I am engrossed by the creation of complex tonalities and how to arrange them together, maintaining harmony while combining contrasting silhouettes.
I work with nature inspired shapes, lines and textures building layer upon layer on the canvas, almost like the manifestation of an internal dialogue.
The motives inside my paintings are routed into daily events and anecdotes. Mostly, using nature as a vehicle for introspection at the service of the representation of thought processes. Nature becomes the anecdote and the formal elements of the artwork, such as composition, color, textures and lines emerge at the core of narrative aspect of the painting.
La Peña's mission is to support artistic development, to provide exposure to emerging local visual artists, musicians, poets and other performing artists, and to offer Austin residents the full spectrum of traditional and contemporary Latino art.
La Peña proudly presents a collective exhibition, featuring works from local artists under the theme "Day of the Dead". "Dia de los Muertos" is dedicated to the over 200,000 people that have died from COVID-19 in the U.S. The exhibit is also a remembrance for the many people that have been killed due to police violence and for the women and children across the world that have suffered and died from domestic violence. We remember all those who have completed their life journey in this world.
