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 geometric 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 and they are a metaphoric representation of the actual Alebrijes. This particular ALEBRIJE I applied a multi monochromatic palette and it is an abstraction taken from the original made on canvas. ALEBRIJE No.12 a original diptych painting on MDF and wood circular panels of 170 cmø x 5 cm and is ready to hang.

I am an abstract artist passionate about mixing styles and experimentation. My work reflects the passion I have for indigenous arts, modern architecture and design in its various manifestations. Geometry is a concept that is always present in my work and although I define myself as a minimalist in recent times I have evolved towards a conceptual and experimental style more related to maximalism as a response to my latest series in which I reinterpret the tangible and intangible cultural heritage of my country Mexico especially its popular arts. Experimentation as part of my processes motivates me to create new things, that's why I think that after this series I would return to my minimalist line if necessary.
