“Life is a pure flame and we live by an invisible sun within us.” Sir Thomas Browne
Ever since I can remember, I have given importance to two things in my life: internal seeking and art. My works of art are concrete and essential approximations of my own inner and outer experiences. They are simple; they reflect me. I have based my work on the flower of life and Metatron’s Cube.
Geometric Abstraction allows me to convey deeper thoughts to my audience as a divine human gift. My art is a strong response to the chaotic world around us. Exploring the elements of geometric shapes, light, and color in the combination, I try to bring about harmony, unity, and balance. I would like to reduce my artistic vocabulary to dots, lines, and shades of white. My biggest challenge is to simplify my art expression.
Born in Caracas, Venezuela.
I have exhibited my artwork in various cities in the United States such as Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, Weston, Las Vegas, Coral Gables, New York, and the world as Canada, Spain and Venezuela
