My work describes methods of learning.
I was born in Leon, Nicaragua, raised in Miami, and later squirmed quickly to NYC to learn what painting was about. Perhaps the culture shock from these places have forced me to paint about making paintings. The current works describe social anxiety within daily miscommunication--using form and color as stage characters in invoked environments of hope and remorse.
Using raw materials traditionally —the 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 painting has evolved. This critique has structured the paintings on a kind of performance stage currently called, The Miscommunication Paintings.
