This piece is entitled "Henry Miller". The drawing was made with ink on paper. This work was inspired in the portrait photo of Henry Miller made by the photographer Brassaï in the early 1930´s in Paris. Miller was for many years baned in the US and Great Britain because of his early books such as Tropic of Cancer and more. His banned books were not published in the United States until 1961 after decades of censorship. In this portrait I reflected on Miller´s wild and difficult early years as a writer in Paris. I took his mouth away as a symbol of censorship. His mouth is no longer part of him it has beeen taken away, however, his right eye still there watching us, cutting through like a knife. This drawing is an original and was made in March, 2011 in Hamburg,Germany.

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.
