Artist Statement

Spheres, clear and colored glass marbles, emerge in my creative works and are objects of my predilection. They have transparency, the capacity to hold light or reflect it and the ability to enclose objects. Checkered tiles bestow perspective and space which brings recollections of my short rearing in Cuba. Stained glass (vitrales) is individually designed and the study of the light and reflections that emerge from it engage me in each painting.
†My favorite medium is oils which allow reworking and glazing. A painting starts out with a thought or concept which I instantly sketch out. As I commence developing further sketches I study visual and written reference material for symbols, architectural structures and integrated objects. Composition is significant and I unconsciously find myself applying the mathematical ratio of the Golden Section in order to achieve balance and direction. †Prior to transferring the final sketch to canvas I usually arrange the colors and the areas of lights and darks. It is then that I concentrate on the method of applying paint and the spontaneity of each brushstroke.
†My vocation as an illustrator taught me the art of visual storytelling which I currently apply to communicate my personal life experiences in the course of my works of fine art. It is my objective to try to make each painting intriguing in order to engage the observer to dwell in my creation. Each artwork brings on a new triumph and the everlasting desire to generate more. It is my desire to see everything around me always as if for the first time and therefore capture itís beauty as it passes through my brain, my body, my hand and finally into the canvas.
