Sculptor, Painter – MEXICO
As a Mexican living in Britain for the past twenty years, he is able to draw on his cultural roots and new cultural stimuli to invigorate his working processes.
He has continually exhibited throughout this time and his work has developed from a painter who sculpts to now predominantly a sculptor who also paints. He found both practices inform the other, symbiotically creating the working rhythm that ignites the work.
Musical instruments, wood and metal are the main materials used, having an intrinsic natural beauty and strong connections to the earth. In common with painting, these materials can be manipulated through colour, thickness, texture and warmth, and additionally the surfaces can be caressed or violated through polishing or chiseling. he likes to contrast the qualities of wood by combining it with other elements. The process of construction is
vital to how the final form is perceived.
