This interview was conducted by Oscar Montenegro and Paulina Beron, who spent the summer at the Printshop as part of the Studio In A School Internship Program.
How does color influence your artwork? Would you consider it an important aspect of your work? If so, why?
No, but there is the story behind the making of each piece and whatever kind of path and decisions I made that led me to creating that work. Many times, one body of work will be inspired by a place or a series of objects; so in the end, the story can be about a place, things in my life or in my mind, things that I find that inform the work. The themes change, but it’s all a reaction and processing of life. There is a nod to a diaristic expression, where the mark-making is almost a document of a piece of time.
Can you give us a brief summary of your career as an artist and possibly describe your experience in one word.
Are there any other forms of art you would like to attempt in your art career?
