My work explores the connection between materiality and movement. Using humble construction materials, I create each piece through a visceral process that seeks to push the boundaries of painting into a sculptural space. To construct each composition, I work on the floor with a trowel in hand, sweeping layers of plaster across wooden panels in an intuitive process of discovery. I mimic the grouting techniques that I learned at an early age while assisting my father during ‘el trabajo,’ at work. The language of minimalist abstraction that defines my work may seem at odds with what is typically thought of as Latin Art — I draw on inspiration found in the built environment and my surroundings to add layers of meaning into my work, which is fundamentally spatial in nature.
