This painting takes the name of a cuban song called "midnight virgin". " Lady of sin Cradle of my song I came kneeling next to your heart" I like the stance of the girl as if it were very innocent same with the expresion in her face, however the use of strokes and color depict her sensual character.
I think one of the main functions of art is to find new meanings in traditional symbols. The fact that this eagle has been a symbol of the American empire for so long, makes people many times forget the beauty in itself of this animal. For me this eagle represents tenacity, speed and conviction which I aim to transmit. This work was done with an expressionist style, with thick and strong strokes the colors used are those of the American flag on purpose. I wonder how much culture can influence the appreciation of an animal.
I am a sinner
This is my version of the Munch´s scream It is inspired by a scene from the movie "There will be blood", where the protagonist daniel plainview confesses to the religious community his feeling of guilt mixed with anger. This piece of art is of Expressionist character, its main objective is to convey the choleric character of the character. mixed with the guilt he feels at the time I think this work to captures the need to scream in order to release contained emotions, just like in the movie when after doing so the protagonist experiences an inner change.
Strange time in my life
My intention with this painting was to represent a moment of my life through a popular romantic scene of an unconventional and modern character, for which I was inspired by a scene from the movie "The fight club". This is the final scene where the protagonist finally admits his identity and tells the woman he loves "You met me at a very strange time in my life" Many times I have felt identified with these words and with the exact moment where they hold their hands watching as the world falls around them. The blue color dominates the majority of the work with different green and celestial tones, lights follow a lively hue of white and yellow colors. The technique used is mostly postimpresionista, giving fundamental importance to the color and movement.
Goddess of the moon
This is a painting I made for a very important person I met. She was kidnapped during the dictatorship in my country. She came from a wealthy family, yet she worked as a teacher in a rural school, for children of limited resources. I met her when I was sent to do community work in my school because of discipline problems. She left me a lot of valuable lessons, especially about poverty and the social work she was doing as a form of struggle. His rebellious spirit inspired my behavior to the point that I devote many of my stories. This work is based on a color photograph that I gave and still keep in my wallet. In memory of selene. The name of the painting comes from her name Selene, who in Greek was the goddess of the moon, and what remains of her memory
