Artist Statement

Working with memories has been my way to embrace my Dominican identity while living in the United States as I continue to canalize, through mixed media, the convergence of cultures and recollected experiences. These recollections about childhood, family, relationships, food, melodies and transitions are the ones that have shaped my artistic sensibility and are constantly informing my work and its process.

This artistic process is spontaneous and intuitive, yet deliberate with a sense of improvisation. The concept “Nothing is wasted, everything is transformed,” was instilled in me by my father since my early years and it is a concept in which my art practice is still enveloped. This merging of the new with the old is present in the artwork in the way I collage fragments of scrap paint from my palette, as well as using old records and elements that I collect through the years.

Re-using these elements that have a connection to the past, is also for me a way of returning, of going back. Fragmentation becomes an experience of reuniting different memories and elements on the same surface, in a choreographed composition where there’s always going to be a suggestion of a continuation or a possible return.

Addressing the nowhere land that is created between two cultural experiences, my art practice is the result of a playful dance between memories and imagination influenced by a familiar rhythm that is embedded in the artwork as a celebration of lines, textures, colors and emerging figures in a constant process of discovery....
