As an artist, I like to disclose the creative process by all the means available to me. The objects I create; paintings, collages, sculptures, poetry and writings, along with the activities I generate; art programs, art events, political art interventions, cultural celebrations, curatorial practice, art exhibits, and teaching, are all part of my expression of humanity. My work’s real value is fulfilled when it interacts with people and brings out our cultural, social and individual personas to do the common good; it is then that I’m an artist! Art lives in human culture and it is with my art that I try to explain who I am in that culture. My intent is to create by reviewing history, observing nature’s ways and participating in the politics of culture as a process to invite transformation for the best possible future.
