b. 1989 (Caracas, Venezuela)



Assembling, carving and shaping

an idea,

exploring a material -and its qualities.

Its coming to reality.

Only making the work is the making of a work.

The by-product:

A witness of time spent doing it,

now, spirited through its making,

A new object that, hopefully, acts on many a sense,

And sometimes, causes a novel feeling or situation,

Not ever solely figurative neither ever completely abstract,

my work is representative of both:

-naïve and aestethic,

primitive and modern-

if showed in a simple way.


I intend my work to face:

-Life’s strangeness

from a layman’s point of view
