PAIS MARAVILLA is my most recent series in which I try to synthesize each aspect that makes up Mexico, choosing specific concepts that speak of my experience as a creative, the meaning they have in my life and the role they have had in my work as an artist. As in all my projects, I dedicate years of research, however this is the result of my own experience, so it took only two years to shape it, however I consider that due to the extensiveness of the subject, it will take me perhaps other two years to finish executing all the pieces that make up the complete series. This is a very personal and intimate project because I touch the roots, the light and the darkness of what it means to be Mexican, and it precisely makes the Wonder Country my most ambitious artistic project, because as never I get involved in a catharsis process more intense than never experienced, I try to encompass one of the widest cultural ranges of the human race, and synthesize it within an aesthetic framework that encompasses "painting, sculpture, installation, object and extended sculpture." Each subject, each object, each painting has to do with my own experience of Mexico; of its smells, its flavors, its colors, its emotions, its shapes, its sounds, its climates and above all, its people. The alebrije is a type of handicraft native to Oaxaca, also called Nahuatkzosquit. Alebrijes are imaginary beings made up of physiognomic elements of different animals, a combination of several animals, not only fantastic but also real that form an amazing being. My alebrijes are pieces made of different figures that I usually apply in my work such as circles, repetitive lines and patterns and the use of superimposed and distorted geometric figures to achieve the effect of hyper dimensionality, also I return to the color palette normally used in indigenous art. This particular ALEBRIJE MADRES C1,2,3,4,5 I use a monochromatic pallet in order for these characters being subordinated to the Madre C which I inspired from. ALEBRIJE MADRE C2, original painting on Canvas 190 cm x 190 cm x 6 cm and is ready to hang.

I am an abstract artist with a passion for minimalism and expressionism and it is through my work that I express what I cannot say in words. If I had the ability and eloquence to express its meaning, possibly I would not be a plastic artist but a writer of science fiction novels, although what I can say is everything that inspires and drives me to create what I do, I am passionate about geometry, structural engineering, modern architecture, functionalism, brutalism and deconstructivism, modernist furniture, textile, automotive, aeronautics and nautical design. Since I was a child I have had contact with popular arts, mainly "indigenous art", its simple designs but full of spiritual symbolism and its colors transport me to intangible places where my imagination unleashes. My work is the result of all this, perhaps for that reason I consider that it has a deep decorative vocation, however behind it there is an exhaustive research work through which I satisfy my intellectual need to justify it and support my ideas, although at the end what matters the least to me is whether the viewer understands it or can explain it academically, on the contrary, what matters most to me is how it impacts their senses and emotions.
