VIEW IN MY ROOM
WAR/ STATEMENT-EXPLANATION With this artwork I wanted to talk about war, the horror of it and the devastating results to people. Soldiers (inside the horse) become monsters serving violence and death in its supreme form. The sun (left top corner) shines bright black and the evil horse of war is fighting the eagle of freedom. On top of the eagle you will find the flag of the United States of America (as they are supposing the nation protecting the freedom and the well being of all nations around the world, and fighting their suppressive leaders). On the other hand, the General riding the horse of war (horse inspired by the Trojan War) has a big smiling figure on its body, with one eye being a dollar sign and the other Benjamin Franklin smiling, clearly imposing that the ones riding the horse of war are the same ones fighting against it.

ARTIST STATEMENT: When I begin a new work of art, I am at peace. My ideas are not so much premeditated but rather led within each moment. I will think on a subject that is important to me for some time but it is within the moment of creation that the idea truly unfolds into something bigger. As a commentary on critical social issues, my work is intended to invoke conversation and a deeper exploration of their very existence and their ongoing effects on the world around us. These topics may include mental health, warfare, food & health, immigration, drug addiction or environmental destruction. I may also reflect on topics such as love, music and the struggles of life and transitions. My work examines the intricate details of each issue and the cyclical, hypocritical nature of our society at large. Each piece is very specific and has an expanded meaning and a deeper message. Every detail you see adds to that overall message. My belief is that you can like something that looks beautiful but you can only love something that means something deeper to you and emotionally touches you. It is at this moment when the artist and the viewer can walk through the same thought patterns. When I am deciding on a piece and the materials to use, it is serendipitous and is connected only to the moment of creation. I believe that each technique and each material has a right place and a right time and each one becomes the bridge that allows me to express my thoughts in a unique and creative way.
