Artist Statement

Artist Statement

This body of work comes from a community of ideas.
My art evoke a dialogue, a message as a language I speak, to create peace in a cosmic dialogue.
It speaks in the future tense in a context of time that evoke a feeling of ‘time passes’... The emotional and psychological content of my subject, the way the body expresses its emotion, it contextualizes the concepts of the duality of the meaning of the imagery. My style is an expression of my philosophy which becomes a language using, Post Modern, Expressionism, Latin American Tradition, Surrealism, and soft Classism. It expresses my deep awareness of global issues and is counterbalanced with my cultural heritage.
My inspiration originates from lifenature, it’s too spiritual to express. However, it is the same expressive energy as the work transfused between energies which awaken the realms of these energies and evoked them in dialogue… . I use a certain iconography, which becomes a language. My art has helped me to see that nothing on earth is solitary, all things are interlinked.

The unique expression in my art, is an attitudelanguage of my style but is easily understood in it’s emotion.
My art Carries powerful messages about the maker.
In compositions, even though the figures kisses and harmoniously balanced and interlocks with another, all actions are synchronized conceptually. Each figure is psychologically isolated from the other in hisher own realm and from the viewer, in a mood of introspection and contemplation prevails, in his or her own intimate dialogue.
The truth of life is revealed in nature as an art maker, i am guided by nature, from which I have formed my art man is ‘nature’ as he was created from ‘nature’. I am more concern about man’s psychological and spiritual well-being, than his physical needs. I have gradually become aware that my own development as an artist influenced by two energies ”God” and ‘nature’ this spirit permeates the pores of my concepts.
I cannot describe my process of making art as soon as I start to explain what I am doing, it’s a lie it demystify the mystery of the organic truth. My work explores the hidden regions of the psyche. Inspiration comes from an awakening reality, in which the visible world and the interior reality interpenetrate and fused.
The accent placed on the power of the imagination, the child like innocence. Imagination alone informs me of what could be, pushing the irrational to its ultimate consequence.
What I imagined and believe becomes a reality in my art.
My art defines itself.
An attitude in the thinking of my work is, reductionism, where i reduce images to symbols, hence the symbolistic expression, which preoccupied and resonates my work, which become my style of expression. Time didn’t exist until it’s time, so as my paintings didn’t exist until it’s time, who brought it to time.

Understanding of my art, involves two person’s imagination, the spectator and the artist. To get into my art, to see what it is really about, you need to know what to look for and be prepared to use your imagination.
Getting involved in this way, makes a voyage of discoveries in reading the intellectual and emotional content of my art the use of symbols etc, the appeal to the senses of colour the display of emotion through colour, the expression of social and cultural attitudes. My art should enlightens the mind and spark the imagination and if it does, it has become my voice.
The figures, each figure must read the exact emotions that relate them to the given event.
I do not marry to the content of my art, only to the spirit of the content.
I create a language that evoke the situation or image that speaks in the future tense. I believe that art is a spiritual calling and it should engage in the spiritual realm because it reveals that which lives within.
My art is not merely, a vehicle for religious and social teachings but an expression that reflects aspects of time and the compression of the space and the mood of sadness that permeates it which conveys a psychological tension. The process of my work is a dialogue, which changes as time passes and this dialogue is the principle that governs the process of my work. I take inspiration from my intimate dialogue.
