The artwork has an emphasis upon distortion of the human form resembling the struggle and distress for freedom. I am driven to portray the racial and social injustice of our true history. I intend to question our indignity and religion to unravel caged emotions and the anguish for change.
There are scenes with city sings, debris, cracked walls, elements of urban graffiti to aspire the decadence of our modern society, the naked emotions of the poets, the cry of tribal music that sheds the light of our own broken self.
I create images that suggest and fulminate movement: compositions that can be viewed in all angles as a visual counterpoint like Jazz, music in its quest for interchangeability with a polyphony interactions.
At a times there are bodies intertwined in sexual composition that evoke the salvation through our feeling and physical union.
I intent to break, mix the styles, movements and technique to align the subject of each artwork with a unique imaginary and message. To be uncategorized or de-categorize a signature style freed from any link of tradition and identification but for the artwork itself to be independent with its own meaning.
