Painting as an open surface, Layered fragments of time and materials collaging together as life itself, with the complexity of unpredictable events but also with the intentional and somehow contained fluidity that ultimately shape our life.
I enjoy drawings made by the rain in the walls, outlines of growing trees braking the sidewalks, old layers of paint coming through the surface over the years, drawings made by insects in the leaves of a tree. Observing and tracing the surroundings in the presence of time, light or quick memories.
I was born in Medellin-Colombia and moved to NYC in 1997. I have a degree in Fine Arts from National University of Colombia and a BFA in Graphic Design. I have worked in visual arts and textile design over the last 20 years.
I have been part of the Inwood community for about 7 years and so happy to be part of Cornerstone Studios since 2015.
