Statement

As a Latin artist who grew up in Brooklyn, my earliest experiences of my Hispanic community were through a lens of urban neglect. 

 

These experiences influenced a lifelong interest in the intersections and divisions within cities defined by government policy. The disenfranchisement and boundaries of communities are represented in the sculptural, geometric and abstract works I create with found or commercial materials.

 

The work is distressed, textured, broken and pieced together, reflecting urban conditions in all their complexities, and are a channel for engagement with social and community-based causes.
