Artwork Description:

A person would have to be insane to fight a 1,200-pound beast. The objective of the bullfight is, in fact, the opposite: to avoid a brutal confrontation by using the human attributes of intelligence, grace, and elegance. Since moving to Laredo, Texas I began to explore the appeal of bullfighting. I kept asking myself is it an artistic performance or a brutal blood sport? The truth is - bullfighting is complicated. It is at once repellent, fascinating, graceful, sacramental, beautiful, theatrical, ritualistic, and time-honored as well as an odious fight that almost always ends in death. Mario Carrin is a Spanish bullfighter who was born in Seville, Spain, in 1934 referred to bullfighting as a dramatic ballet with death. As he would in dancing, the Matador must control his movements maintaining the rhythm, not of music, but of danger. On stage, a faux pas means an interruption of artistic flow. In the bullfighting arena, a mistake could mean the death of the star of this drama. I combine many elements into the final piece. I paint on the image, I drawn on it, I scratch it, and I scan it again. And apply texture till I am satisfied.
