My paintings reflect the influence of geometry and intense colors chacteristic of the physical surroundings in my country of origin, Venezuela. Over there, the coesxistence of architectural structures, minimalist in lines and colors, with an exhuberant nature of bold colors, create a contrasting yuxtaposition between nature and human constructions.
As an artist, I am intensely interested in observing and representing the way we live, and the geometric elements we, as humans, use to build our structures. My inspiration comes from exploring interior and exterior spaces and the relationships I found between them, not only because life takes place in them, but also because they are entities that endure the passing of time. In my work, I play with lines and planes within these constructions, making them intersect and interfere to re-create reality or form new shapes that not always exist in what I observe.
In addition, I am interested in studying geometrical arrangements to form patterns of organization. I combine lines, planes, shapes, and colors to establish a rhythm between figures throughout the compositions. By establishing either a hierarchy between elements or a lattice connecting components that are neighbors in space, I create organized structures featuring links between geometrical elements.
My technique consists of short and long brush strokes apply predominantly with flat brushes. My palette varies from chromatic grays of the rainy days I love, to bold tones inspired by lively colors of my Venezuelan heritage.
