Selfies (for better or for worse), " instagrammin' ", and what is "trending" now are the "hooks" that I am using currently because it is integral to our international/global social media lexicon. I use this platform as an opportunity to continue to explore, have fun, critique, and be challenged by iconic, figurative, imaginative, fun visual diversions. These paintings are a passionate continuation of my deep interest in drawing, perspective, color combinations, sarcasm/cynicism, humor, contemporary culture, technology, and, at the expense of sounding cliché once again, the human drama/condition.
Visit my Painting Galleries: 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.
