My work deals with the theme of spirituality with a concept of contemporary art – abstract – where the ontological foundations of the soul – spirit – nature and essence of being are expressed, color plays a very important role in my work that determines the harmony of the contrast of shadows and strong colors where the connection with spirituality is found, my abstract painting is a language of chromatic freedom that expresses through color the different astral states of being, spirituality is an inspiring and creative source where color is the permanent search in my works. My work is abstract with figurative and semi-figurative details, sometimes it has linear, vertical and horizontal movements, etc. with very strong colors that define my work, for me color is the means of expression and is decisive in a medium that I want to express and reveal all the sensations and emotions where the viewer feels the energy and impact of color in my work, the contrasts of bright lights mean astral energies where the transcendence of the cosmic field – universe – is where I wrap my palette with the mixture of tones, feeling and inspiration as a work of art in my paintings.
