Logrando dignidad través del trabajo transformador que elijo realizar.

 

Diariamente pintando y dibujando, a veces creando procesos de 
repetición para seguir haciendo marcas. Materiales se obtienen de lugares comunes y se utilizan hasta acaban. A menudo utilizo diagramas en mi trabajo con el propósito de "codificación de liberación", una imagen que puede despertar la libertad dentro de un espectador y mejorar la imaginación.

Achieving dignity through transformative labor I choose to perform. 

 

Daily painting and drawing, at times creating processes of endurance to keep making marks. Tools and materials are obtained from common places and are used until exhaustion. Often I utilize diagrams in my work for the purpose of “liberation coding”, an image that can awaken freedom within a viewer and hone one's imagination.
