"In my paintings I enjoy expressing spontaneity and randomness with color, this gives them a type of freedom and ease that contrasts the deeper voices of the subject matter, the story behind. So at the end my art is about life itself. A struggle between the jing and the jang, the laughter and the seriousness of being alive. I feel like I am a citizen of the world, like many spaniards now have to leave the country in look for a better life, and many people in these world have to do the same. My art is represented in aggressive and raw intense colors that I take from my native land, and the light of both countries where I have been fortunate to live, the Californian and Andalusian SUN. The red colors, the yellows and ocres of the Spanish landscape and spirit, just like the collective historical psyche of the Iberian population holds true to the “tragic sense of life”. I believe my art to be universal, and nomadic, as I feel like a gypsy painter at times. I am a california painter now, but me and my art are evolving and changing daily."
