ARTIST STATEMENT

As global news reports an alarming increase in wars, social unrest, and natural disasters, The Gentle Revolution is more urgent than ever. By reiterating powerful historic mantras from moments ripe with cultural evolution—and framing these messages with extreme beauty—my purpose is to emphasize their value in order to inspire humanity with positive ideologies.

In my practice, I entwine decorative elements of the Argentine trompe l’oeil effect of Filete Porteño, antique graphics from amusement parks, and vintage psychedelic letterforms. Employing mixed media, I create with cut and carved, painted and gilded, panels of wood and aluminum, found objects and mirrors. With a concentration on craftsmanship and luminosity, my works hold a kinetic charge akin to the reverence of sacred objects and religious icons.
