ON MY WORK

MY ARTWORK represents a Second Renaissance of an Aristotelian philosophical and aesthetic vision, trying to achieve the artistic expression that recreates saying, "Yes we are here, not maybe, but indisputably yes we are!" "Yes we are aware of what we perceive! "" The senses do not deceive us! "" Oh yes there is only one truth, but sometimes, because obviously we are not infallible or omniscient, nor omnipotent, we can not know it! "My work attempts to communicate that man should be the end in itself!

My work tries to scream to civilized humanity that beauty itself is objective and that depends on the correct mathematical integration of the parts to the whole. I firmly believe that the human race itself can practice virtues that help him to achieve values and that his maximum value, his own life, deserves to be obtained, maintained and immortalized. That the human being who attains wisdom, who acts, who aspires with justice, fortitude and temperance, the cardinal virtues of classical Greece, that the man who seeks to attain value of purpose by practicing rationality and ambition will achieve his greatest reward: his highest goals, his greatest emotion: HAPPINESS

"Romantic Heroism"is what my work really represents, a heroic sense of life, a sense that man is capable of shaping his own destiny, a sense, with which there is a sure hope some day man can achieve his most cherished dreams. To project a sense of strength, achievement, happiness, full and deep.

“PROMETHEUS FREED”

My sculpture "Prometheus Freed" is inspired by the central figure of the work of Aeschylus' Prometheus Freed, the second of three major literary works of the Greek tragedy. "Prometheus Unbound" is a tribute to freedom, which is achieved through struggle and loyalty to our own values. Similar to exile Prometheus on a rocky island, this work is located in a Classic Villa at Port Iztapa at the Guatemalan Pacific Ocean. The sound of the waves pounding on the shore serves to reinforce the idea of the endless struggle to defend his principles. This sculpture is made of polished casted concrete, 2.2m high on a 1.5m high base.
