About Living forces

We as living creatures are always in search of experiences and stories that relate to us. We live in need to create a logical or causal connection in everything that we pursue. Our way of thinking, feeling, and acting come naturally to us, but there’s a fundamental disposition as human beings to look for the known, the familiar. 

When I look at these artworks, I see their existence and how they feel as living forces; some elements remain as independent organisms where forms play out their own life; unpredictably relating to and through the viewer’s experience. 

Art can provide everyone the opportunity to see more of the familiar and question our reality so we can embrace new ways of understanding ourselves and the world.
