Biography

STATEMENT:

For Baudelaire, a work of art is made of two elements: one, eternal and invariable, which is contributed by the artists's personality, and the other, relative, temporary and circumstantial, with reference to the period.
My hand dances to the sound of my experience, the only eternal element of one's personality. Urging and rapidly, it moves between enigmatic figures which become longer in infinite and temporary time, invariable and circumstantial, directing the brush between analogies and theories of color. However, when my hand dances best, is when it rhythmically represents the soul's unchained disturbances.
