​TRANSFORMING ART


I'm a US-Venezuelan artist, moved from Venezuela to the United States back in 2003, escaping from the dictatorship and regime persecution. I have been  also working as civil rights, human rights, environmental justice, and vulnerable population activist/practitioner, and helping other artists living under authoritarian regimes.


My work is a combination of nature with sand and ocean water from Bristol Beach, Massachusetts. Horseshoe crabs cast-off, shells, and other materials with seasonal colors reflecting the changes in life and sunlight transforming acrylic colors. ​ The maestoso millenarian creature reflects the never-ending time and the sand the earthly approach in a combination with the changes from the ocean water and the beach as the center of the picture. Acrylic colors mixed with sand, pebbles, candle-wax, ashes, and ocean water as a way to transfer the light into the diffuse images. An inspiration from different poets and music provide the soul of every painting reflecting the seasonal changes and the views from the beach.  Each painting reflects the moods, environment and different holistic experiences in an interaction among the elements and the canvas for the inspiration.


I mix sand, beach materials and colors, painting directly at the beach. It is about colors and texture. Yes, you can touch the art to feel the paintings.
