I am an artist, that like many people, is interested in various subjects and themes. My many interests have led to the creation of a body of work that I consider to be slightly disjointed. The disjointed relationship between my works is an honest representation of my thoughts and feelings at any one moment. My paintings vary both stylistically and in content but are linked thematically. My paintings are explorations of my Mexican-American identity through reexaminations of mexican history, my personal and familial history, and the context in which I have lived my life. I perform my explorations through drawings and paintings that are shaped visually by my various aesthetic influences. With my work, I attempt to reconcile my Mexican heritage, with my upbringing in the United States. It is an attempt to reconcile the mixed messages, ideas and values I received growing up between cultures and languages as a way to better understand our increasingly hybridized world.
