“I often think of poetry and painting as the same art form where colorful strokes and words connect to create a unified whole. Just as literary artists often convey a story between the lines of a text, I paint visions between colors and between ideas. I juxtapose intense and original figures (and sometimes  overwhelming urban landscapes) with premonitory dreams. 
               I consider some of my paintings as enigmatic “maps” that negotiate real and emotional space. In this way, the figures, buildings and symbols drifting through the paintings may be thought of as the cartography of these “maps”. The viewer has to elucidate them in order for him to read the artist, and, as a result, to read the inside himself. In the maps remanents become revitalize, erased fragments reappear, and signs and symbols talk to themselves. Perhaps they speak quietly about invisible mirrors, old laberynths, or the inescapable death. I portray figures in a real context (or community) where all orders become mixed and confused: animal, vegetable and mineral... I paint between rigidity and overflow, large uniform surfaces next to small, busy detailed sections, in order to show that there is movement, an ebb and a flow of iconographies. I want to point out, among many things and as others have before me, the relationships of groups of existing emotional figures with their social actions, or lack of them.”
