Artists Statement

 I am a Cuban born, New York-based artist; my work depicts the impact of rampant industrialization upon urban-landscapes. My images render and expose post-industrial ecological blight; as well as examine and focus on growing "post-manufacturing" environmental problems.

Throughout my multimedia fusion approach to art making (which includes painting, drawing, photography, and optical installation), the paradoxical and contradictory coexistence of nature with industry (and industry with nature) is the primary-theme and focal aesthetic-concentration. My work explores the landscape as a memory of the future.
I have an interest in creating work from an ecological environmental perspective results from my early environmental and social-activism in my native Cuba.

My body of work has the theorethical support in the environmental philosophy that is defend by Winona La Duke and other Native American environmental activists.
