Artist Statement
The progress of my work can be described as a sequence where groups of paintings or drawings comprise an aspect or a puzzle piece to a larger concept. Early works used geometrical, planar and mechanical forms to express two or three dimensional volume relationships that appear to move in two directions at the same time. The visual effect I was after played with the surreal. The use of geometry in my work reflects a search for the "Ideal"; beyond color is geometry, the calculation of form. However the geometrical imagery in my work describes more than a mathematical order. Flexible geometrical constructions endowed with the suggestion of movement suspended in space, together with light and color, were essential elements to achieve an ethereal and mystical atmosphere implicating spirituality.The desire to express a spiritual element in my work became eminent to me following a visit to my native Peru in 1994. I felt a strong metaphysical connections with the southern Pacific coast region where the ancient pre-Inka Nazca/Paracas civilizations had existed. Later artwork show a detailed description of a technoogy releasing a type of energy that can be associated with the intricate network of lines and dots in a pattern reminiscent of the Inka Kuipu and/or weaving methods of ancient textiles. The Kuipu is a type of textile fashioned from an elaborate but ordered series of knots along myriad threads hanging down from one end, Among the theories for explaining the purpose of the Khipu is the idea that the pattern formed by the knots is a complex form of language or a method for recording information in a manner much like the digital language of the modern computer. Lines and dots in my work also have the appearance of energy and seems to describe a technology that uses and dissipates energy in the forms of light and sound. Understanding the various elements in the imagery of my work has led me to an appreciation of the common ground between the various methods in which humanity studies and describes the nature of the world around us.
