"My background as a North A,erican, a Texan and Hispanic male forms my aeshetics, personal experiences and trips enrich the themes in my work of the past fifteen years. The intensity of my work derives from my pride and feelings toward my culture. Indigenous cultures are also driving force in my work. The indigenous peoples of varying times and places interact inmy work. My work crosses cultures and portrays the human condition, the strugles, the harmony, the social injustice, and the celebration fo life.Ongoing themes in my work conbine history, mythology, and religion, past and present, real and contrived. The details of life, sex, violence, and humor join to enrich scenes of both normal and unusual activities. My work emphasizes these intense social and culutral contents as well as formal and contemporary aesthetics elements. My work includes various architectures of signs and symbols from ancient civilizations. Viewers are invited to share my cultural experiences and draw their own interpretations."
