Development and Technique


As a Mexican living in Britain for the past twenty years, I am able to draw on my cultural roots and new cultural stimuli to invigorate my working processes. I have continually exhibited throughout this time and my work has developed from a painter who sculpts to now predominately a sculptor who also paints. I find both practices inform the other, symbiotically creating the working rhythm that ignites the work. 


Musical instruments, wood and metal are the main

materials used, having an intrinsic natural beauty

and strong connections to the earth.

In common with painting, these materials

can be manipulated through colour, thickness,

texture and warmth, and additionally the

surfaces can be caressed or violated

through polishing or chiselling.

I like to contrast the qualities of wood by

combining it with other elements.

The process of construction is vital to

how the final form is perceived.
