DETERMENT OF THOUGHT 2019
Through abstract forms, I find the way to materialize a unique expression of personal experiences, feelings and thoughts. My motivation is to show my true nature. Each one of my works carry an intense and profound emotion. Much thought and control is given to each stroke, line, texture, color and composition, as I dare to share my inner self. Mediums and materials are carefully chosen, collect, and acquired through the years. The pieces of metal, wood, cord and others all have had a special moment and have been integrated in order to fulfill my wish to communicate.
Delicate papers, as our feelings, ink sticks grinded on its stone, along by meditating, that is diluted with water to become the flowing ink, like life itself; handmade brushes adding to the strength and or lightness of thought, with the endeavor of sharing a complete sensation of unique quality.

DIVERGENT PATHS 2017
My work is based on the SHODO form , without intending to do Japanese calligraphy I do write in my own manner in order to share my inner self, work that I call SHO ( in Japanese it means writing). What the SHODO artists also practice who they create is the making of their own ink, I also grind the SUMI bar against its stone in order to produce my ink. Along with the making of the ink, when grinding, one meditates in order to transmit oneself into the ink and when placing the strokes a ones essence is deposited onto the paper.
