Artist Statement -



"Through my art I endeavor to represent by various methods the world in which we live. Thus, I may express the duality of life by contrasting light and dark in my paintings while I juxtapose organic and geometric forms in my sculptures. Independently of the theme of an individual piece, my work is a reminder to the observer of the ethereal quality and mutability of our seemingly solid physical reality."

Arrieta-Eskarzaga
