For nearly two decades, Art Santa Fe has been a driving force behind Santa Fe’s vibrant contemporary art scene. The show will be the culminating event to the inaugural Santa Fe Art Week celebration. With a focus on building platforms, gaining knowledge, growing audiences, and supporting artistic innovation, it’s the perfect theme to tie together these two art-focused Santa Fe events.

“In recent years my work has been to find the solutions, methods or artistic modes of an idea generated by a series of my past.
I Am developing a single work that never ends and from each painting, each series is unleashed an enigma to solve. The exhibitions are the result that re-opens new tracks for a new series. Always in my paintings and collages I seek to combine a vocabulary established between abstraction and figuration, mixing vegetable and organic structures with more abstract patterns.
I try to transmit in them, the mix that I aspire and I live. My images are born of my passion to combine, gather, unite, stir, agitate, tangle, textures and semi-human figures within spaces or sea-terrestrial landscapes.”
