My work describes methods of learning.
I was born in Leon, Nicaragua, but raised in Miami, and quickly squirmed to NYC to learn what painting was all about. Perhaps this is why these three societies have imposed my paintings to research why I make paintings. The current paintings describe social anxiety in daily miscommunication--using form and color as stage characters in invoked environments.
I like to use raw materials the traditional way it was historically applied in academic painting, the contrast of modern paint with pigment has become a kind of fanatical review on how I think contemporary paintings evolve. This is how I’ve structured a kind of performance stage for the current Miscommunication Paintings.
