In its clearest and simplest form, a physicist strives to explain with reasoning, our surroundings and existence. A philosopher is a thinker that pushes thoughts to the deepest crevices of the mind and consciousness. I was raised as a philosopher and became a visual artist with a fascination for theoretical physics and improvised invention.
My passion for Art awoke at Miami-Dade College where I was classically trained as an observational painter, like the old Masters, among other modern techniques and modern influences. I wanted to use everything I had learned growing up from a Cuban Renaissance family, and express it through my talents in visual art. In 2006, during my education in Boston’s School of the Museum of Fine Arts/ Tufts University, I was greatly influenced by the Dada philosophies and makeshift invention of repurposing objects. I exorcised sculpture, inventive mechanics, video and performance art while using “Painting” in all of its meanings and history, as the subject matter. By the time I graduated (2009), my philosophies in art making had concluded that in order to create a timeless masterpiece in the 21st century, the object(s) of artistic influence need to stimulate multiple observational senses simultaneously, and reveal the traces and references of its history.
For about a decade now, my suitcase of methods and techniques has developed artistic objects purely from observing an internal source. Invention and creative thinking is crucial when material resources are limited to the endless capacity of the imagination. Most of my process relies on autonomy, as my work is a creature that develops organically working around my survival and lifestyle.
While residing in my home town, Miami Fl, the current mission is to return to an exterior source for subject-matter with visually poetic portraits of the places of my roots; from Miami to Cuba, Costa Rica, the Canary Islands and Barcelona.
