Tuesday, November 9th Vagabond Creative Studio and Gallery, 2017
This body of work is a transformation of collages and photographs into paint. Much has changed in the world since I began this work in June of 2016. I have felt my world shake and my perception of the world change as social progress regressed. These paintings are my personal response as an artist.
La Razon, 2011
I have become inspired by the simple beauty of the street art that covers the walls of Buenos Aires. Everyday when entering the Subte (subway) I am given a free newspaper, La Razon. The newspaper is propaganda from the Argentine government. This series, which is still in progress, is my interpretation of both the sincerity of the city walls and the instability of it's current events.
Mujeres de la Calle, 2007
While living in Antigua, Guatemala I became fascinated by the amount of indigenous women living in the streets. I began approaching them, talking to them, asking them if I could take their picture, and giving them money in return. I would then paint them from the photograph, photograph the painting, and give each woman a photograph of the portrait I had painted. Each woman reacted differently, but the common ground was that I created a relationship with the women. We recognized one another in the streets and always greeted one another.
