My oil and acrylic paintings are anchored in themes of quotidian domestic settings. Influenced by my Venezuelan upbringing, a passion for lush color, intricate patterns, and naïve and outsider art dominates my work. Each piece emerges as I metaphorically collage different elements into the work to create tableaus steeped with personal symbolism that explore nuances of the spaces we inhabit. Drawing from the familiar, I navigate between seeing, describing, interpreting and inventing. These colorful compositions with their shifting, oscillating planes present familiar, yet idiosyncratic off-kilter worlds. Infused with a unique, magical vibrancy, their vivacity acts as a foil to the darkness and grief often present in our reality.
