Casiopea

Towards the end of 2006, I was invited by two friends and art collectors to participate in the Art Magazine Casiopea, a project that Casa de Ensueños Art Gallery is proud to sponsor. Casa de Ensueños Art Gallery, in Guadalajara, Mexico, is owned by Sergio Quintor and Stan Osofsky. The theme for the 2007 edition was "Magic Realism".

By participating in the magazine project, I agreed to fulfill the project's objective, which was to contribute 40 original works (each formatted at 11 x 8 1/2 inches, the dimensions of the magazine pages). The full scope of the project was such that 40 artists were invited (each producing 40 original pieces). The exhibition (which occurred in the Spring 2007) featured the 40 magazines, every single one including an individual artistic contribution by each of the 40 participating artists. After the exhibition, each participating artist received a copy of the Art Magazine containing one of each of the originals pieces of artwork.

Painting Galleries

Visit my Painting Galleries: navar For over twenty years, image-making for me has been a passion and avenue for exploring experiences, dreams and preoccupations, including issues of our dependence on technology, consumer culture, relationships, spirituality, politics, and the human "theatre". The paintings are arranged into different galleries, grouped, chronologically (the earliest from 1993 and spanning into the present) and "themes", especially when I find myself working in a series of paintings inspired from my life experiences, memories, nostalgia and personal interest, for example multi-generational, cross-cultural, popular consumer-based iconography and imagery, such as Chespirito, the Morton Salt Girl, muppets from Sesame Street, the Mexican Loteria, and Art History Homages.
