Drawing, Graphite on Paper
Size: 8.3 W x 11.6 H x 0.3 D in
This piece is entitled "Ja, why?". This drawing was sold and it belongs to a private collection in Los Angeles. The drawing was made with graphite on paper and is part of a series of drawings entiled: The Typewriter Series. Made with typewriter typing I tried to play with the juxtaposition of the letters, giving a rainy sensation. While falling, the letters become the title of the work Ja, Why? which can sound almost like Hawaii. The main character is looking up to the sky like asking: why? why this? or why me? very existential questions that we in many moments of our lives have asked ourselves but only heaven knows why!

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.
