My work is an evolving self-portrait, a song to personal tensions and obsessions. I grew up in a rural environment surrounded by animals. I attended school in Cienfuegos, Cuba with a concentration in sports. As I awakened to adolescence, all kinds of juggling and experimentation took place, including the sexual. My life changed profoundly as I discovered the feminine, the other, the great power it exerted over me.
Before art, it was sex that seduced me. It was my bridge, an indescribable experience that transported me to eternity. I’ve found the erotic is an abysm, a predecessor to everything else. This inspires my work to revolve around the human impulse, the fall and resurrection of man, his Gomorra and his Eden.
I am interested in promoting fundamental human contradictions, exposing face to face instances of opposing truths. Are not the pure and the obscene a matter of perspective? Occasionally, I find myself confused, finding beauty in the obscene and obscenity in the pure. In sex, life and art, boundaries are in the mind. I am convinced that sex, as much as love, stimulate the flowering of the flesh, and with it, the resurrection of the spirit.
I am not interested in painting reality as it is, with its recognizable perspectives and colors. My passion is to give shape to my feelings. I believe in artists as creators of poetic imaginariums. I’m moved by the power of graphic illustration, the seduction and the precision of the comic, the freshness and cruelty of cartoons.
I paint obsessively, restlessly, feverishly, triggered by the torture of the creative impulse and the certainty that erotic stimulus generates multiple and varying reactions to be explored. I continue to search for concrete answers, I can only attest that every experience is a hallucinating battle.
