Oil on canvas, 2016, 20"w x 16"h
My work explores the cultural impact of the social crisis in my native country and relies on symbolism to explore the ideas and sentiments born from this reality. My process involves the collection of found imagery of people and places from Venezuela; the imagery is then rearranged into painted narratives full of imaginative elements such as giants, theatrical atmosphere and fantastical characters. Through these images, I attempt to universalize issues of oppression, crime and social struggle, evoking empathy in societies so distant from my own.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.
Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
