The path of life
Is cruel and full of beauty
Who plays at dice?
Pains and joys are the colors
Of this world of confusion.

Whilst investigating surrealism I looked at the artist Man Ray and his piece ‘Le Violin d’Ingres’ in which he juxtaposes the image of a female nude with a violin. I really liked this idea of making the body into an inanimate object and so decided to investigate this further. I came across the artist Fran Herbello who creates similar work to Man Ray’s piece and cleverly juxtaposes the body and skin with objects in his photography. After researching his work and also reading in to ‘The Book of Skin’ I came up with an idea for a painting. I decided to juxtapose the feet with a pair of leather boots.

Finally I can show the finished painting! Acrylic and oil on canvas. 44.9 x 57.5 inches. The only pity is that there´s a missing member I haven´t represented. He wash´t there the day I took visual information of them and I hope he can forgive me. Meanwhile I hope you like and enjoy this work!
Por fin puedo mostrar la última pintura que he hecho! Acrilico y óleo sobre lienzo. 114 x 146 cm. Lo único que he de decir que falta un miembro del grupo por representar pero no estaba el día que recogí la información visual y espero que me perdone. Por lo demás espero que les guste y disfruten de la nueva obra!
Really spirited! :)

“I am investigating the psychological complexity of women through intimate observations in the bedroom. The work is inspired by the cult of beauty in contemporary mass media. Intricately painted, decorative interiors are invented to titillate the viewer.”
Awesome painting! :)

I am attaching one painting that I created back in 1997 (in Oakland, CA)… the painting is titled “Enamorado” (“In Love”) and measures 37 x 58 inches. The media is acrylic and wood on canvas and wood (bed head board).
Very nice painting! :)

First African American painter to include positive images of his own culture. I’m using this as the inspiration for my new painting. Can’t wait!

Without getting too personal, abstract, or cliché, I have been experiencing a period of self-reflection and growth these days that I think is reflected in what I’m currently studying. I’ve been completely absorbed by the images of some modern female Latin American artists as of late, partially because of this excited state I’m in is somehow manifested in their works. These women are fantastic and provocative. They inspire and intrigue. And they have entered my life at the perfect time.
