ARTIST STATEMENT: Art has always been, for me, a visual experimentation where the process of making is a fearless journey unto the unknown. The satisfactions come by discoveries, surprises and taking chances. As if learning a new language the artist uses ideas, colors, sounds, visuals to arrange phrases and sentences to create communications and poetry.
