While Christmas is always a somewhat depressing time for me, New Year’s is one of my favorite holidays of the year. I love its festive, optimistic character, and all the celebration around hopes of a new cycle of prosperity and happiness. It doesn’t matter that is only a change in the calendar. What matters is that people’s mindsets are generally focused toward a new beginning, improvement, and change, and all that positivity generates an egregore of optimism that can only attract good things. My New Year Eve was not what i wanted […]
One of my good friends and collectors observed recently that my images have gained an air of “slight melancholy”, and I agree. in the last months, since I started to dive deeper into the abstract/figurative technique, I have totally let the abstract dictate the tone of the paintings, and the process has become almost 80% intuition. that makes me think about what is being released from my heart in the last months. my interpretation of “To Drown a Rose” (title of one of my favorite Death in June songs, although […]
working hard to rebuild my inventory after selling almost all my stuff before coming to Seattle. + shot of my Saturday students doing contour drawing of a ball of crumpled paper. don’t try at home. + i miss my yoga classes and i miss my bike rides. living in a city where bikers are everywhere, that is also a shame.

Truth is that this has been an announced and very desired change, which I have been working hard to get to. Since works like Study for Woman’s Head, Waterlily and others i have been pursuing a more hybrid mix of abstracts and figurativism, almost like if both things were one. Abstract painting is very linked to the spiritual in a more energetic, idealized sense, and my goal to mix […]
I should be packing and mailing my art materials to the Northwest right now since I have now little over than 2 weeks from my move, but the muses govern my life and they act through mysterious ways. Experimentations with abstract underpaintings are not a new thing in my journey but it seems that i am feeling more and more drawn to it, specially since my interest in the ties science + spirituality + art was ignited some time ago. I am fascinated by the concept of color being nothing less […]
the last weeks have found me very prolific, although i have been doing things in a very chaotic manner. i have been dedicating good part of my time to my art direction work for the lingerie company, which is bringing me great satisfaction and excitement. it is bothering me that i am not really seeing a lot of my independent production finished, and my online presence is being sort of neglected lately. i really apologize for all the unanswered emails, messages and comments. the day is just too short, the […]
