The large scale abstract-expressionist paintings and installations that compose the series “Dangerous Land” are a response to environmental, social, political and inhumane worldwide contemporary issues. I give shape to an unstable land in danger of disappearing. This body of work is intended to trigger introspection and to create awareness about the consequences of global warming, globalization and other consequences of human behavior and the concomitant natural disasters which extinguish life and nature. We haven’t seen anything yet. This will be the new beginning for life on Earth. Theologists call it the Apocalypse; the Rapture. I call it destiny.
In this ongoing project, I will continue to reference Biblical passages, classical literature, modern poetry, and other literary works as they influence my art. The materials I’m using in this series of paintings and installations are liquid and powder pigments in raw, various acrylic mediums, emulsion, carbon, recycled rubber and glass, urethane and stainless steel among many others.
