About

From the Series Layer upon layer - I think you should see at least some blood in your plate when you eat steak, no? 2019 Contemporary Art, Textile Wool, raw Mexican wool, cotton and twine About the artist I began using threads due to the memory of an early age image; I was 3 or 4.  In 1978, the year I was born, my father made 3 pieces of art on pressed wood boards. They were painted in black and on their surfaces many nails were hammered strategically.  These nails were used as support to pull copper threads that formed abstract figures, figures from which I was able to easily imagine more figurative images as they were so familiar.  These 3 pieces entered my psyche, I believe. My life has been one of constant change and adaptation, both unsettling and exciting conditions by which one can still grow and thrive, but that can make it difficult to anticipate outcome and overall direction.  Consequently I am intrigued by all that can be controlled.  My fiber-based work has, in itself, characteristics derived by this reality such as fragility, tension, elasticity and equilibrium, and only through a precision-based controlled execution, my work comes to life and tells a story that has a clear beginning and an end in sight.
