About The Artwork

This piece is entitled "Assassinated by the sky" or "Asesinado por el cielo" in Spanish. The drawing was made with pencil, typewriter typing and graphite on paper and is part of a series of drawings entiled: The Typewriter Series. This work was inspired in the poem "Vuelta de Paseo" or "Return from a walk" which is part of the poetry book "Poet in New York" by the great Spanish poet Federico Garcia Lorca. In the upper left side of the drawing I included a fragment of the first stanza of the poem which translated to English will read like this: "Assassinated by the sky, between forms moving towards the serpent and forms that seek the crystal, I will let my hair grow." The central theme of the poem is the subjugation of nature and the oppression of human beings in the big city. The Poet in New York book has been always a deep inspiration in my life and work. This drawing is an original and was made in 2015 in Berlin Germany. Signed and dated on the back.

I was born in Puerto Rico and I currently live in Germany between the cities of Berlin and Hamburg. I studied Art at the University of Puerto Rico and the Complutense University of Madrid, Spain. My work is often intertwined with feelings of ambivalence and metaphorical confrontations. I try to challenge our visual perceptions and our daily routine with a playful irony based on symbols and images, and how other poetic forms of visualization can be reached through them. My pieces are a kind of poetic transducer of modern collective isolation, existential questioning and the displacement of the individual in spaces and situations where uncertainty is an intrinsic part of the work itself. Themes such as the ambiguity of life, poetry, dreams, time, philosophy, literature and man's struggle to survive in his environment are very essential elements of my work. In my case, a painting can take many forms and meanings, while I am in the process of painting, the work slowly metamorphoses and evolves, until it reaches the point of being "finished". In most of my pieces, the result of each work is completely different from what I had in mind at the beginning and that is what I like about painting and drawing, spontaneity, fluidity, not forcing anything but being authentic. In the end, I firmly believe that the work should speak for itself from the moment it leaves the studio. Like a scare in the dark that seizes the viewer and immobilizes him, the work has to create a profound sensation. That is what I try in some way, consciously or unconsciously, to achieve with each of my pieces, to make the viewer think, to put them in a situation of analysis and reaction.
