The majority of my artworks have always revolved around the Latin American subject matter. At this point in my career, I feel that it is time to evolve and start a new chapter based on my appreciation and the romanticism I have for the American Southwest. These new works are based on my memories of childhood and a certain nostalgic echo of days gone by. I used to play cowboys and Indians on Sunday afternoons in the surrounding green hills of my home in Colombia, after the movie matinees and comic book exchanges in the theatre lobby. Are these new works my last stand? Will I ever create more Latin American works? Time can only tell, but for now I am painting and creating with my heart, fulfilling my love affair with the American Southwest.
