Perhaps because I am a child of revolution and political asylum, my work is driven by existential questions that probe ideas and values, history and culture. These questions are expressed by the human figure as it twists and turns into suffering and into sublimation. I think of the body as the agent, the measure, and the sum of physical and cultural substance. I think this because my own body acts and is acted upon. It senses, remembers, and recounts, fashioning a report on lived experiences, committing memory to art. My figuration is characterized by scrupulous effort and continuous study in an endless exploration of tangents that bring hidden information to light.
