Statement

Over the years as my images and subjects have changed along with mediums and techniques; I have found that more than anything, humanity is the driving force in my work. The fact that I was born in Cuba, the quick loss of innocence I experienced as a young person in a foreign place, learning a new language, and growing up without my immediate family will always affect my work; sometimes more obviously than others. The politics that have made me an outsider intrigue me since they are almost always present, yet out of my control. The human condition, our fragile existence on this planet, the way we relate, love, isolate, and unnecessarily damage ourselves and the world we live in are fascinating topics, no matter  how they are ultimately expressed. I am influenced by balance, perceived symmetry, alter-egos, architecture, growth & decay, weathered beauty, and sexuality.
