Painting Gallery 2000-2001

The focus of my work during these years included the interconnectedness I felt with my inner, natural and urban environments. The energy within my work was my fascination with the phenomenon and celebration of existence. Through painting I visually explored elements of my consciousness including dreams, memories, projections of the future and the phenomenon of rejoicing. As an image-maker, the truths, myths, beliefs and insights I investigated through color provide me with a profound sense of inner peace and creative excitement.

Furthermore, my images and colors reflected my love and belief in the natural world, in the divine, in miracles, in spirits, as well as, despite very turbulent times, in the human race. Lastly, it was during these years where I created the most paintings that celebrate my Mexican heritage through both pre-Cortés imagery as well as ecclesiastical iconography.

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.
