paintings are inspired by the light and colors of the Caribbean, where
organic and inorganic forms collide and transpose each other creating a
visually engaging display of light and form. "The
works make allusions to the classical Apollonian-Dionysian split, where
presentation and negation, organization and disorder, become
ever-present,” the artist affirms.
