Prints now available at saatchiartcom search “She Will Destry You” The title is a song by the Cocteau Twins & Harold Budd. I’ve always wanted my art to have the same mood and quality of any song by that band. There is also a sublime commentary on marriage. I am a fine artist who explores themes of mortality through portraiture. My figures, painted in oil on canvas and wood, are an extension of my Mexican heritage and Central America’s Day of the Dead festivities; they appear skeletal and pale, yet somehow flushed and vibrant. Through bravado brushwork and assertive color palettes, I animate my subjects and keep them firmly rooted in the realm of the living, asking my viewers to hold life and death in the same hand. Through my work, I seek to remind viewers of the inherent ephemerality of life, and of its beauty as well — that while death is always around the corner, life is something to be celebrated.
