Artist statement


By embellishing pre -Columbian imagery with contemporary and personal elements, I strive to embody the intersection of Mexico's history, in all its depth and beauty, with the lived contexts of my era. I ground my work in Mayan iconography, using richly textured backgrounds and a chromatically satisfying palette of complimentary colors to draw viewers into the world of the painting. The life of each painting, however, is concentrated in the figure's eyes, as if the spirit of the heritage that inhabits me looks back from the world behind the canvas.
