Cold Wax Paintings

Cold Wax is a paste like medium used for creating textures with oil paint. Due to the fragility of the medium these are only available for in-person sales. Extreme hot and cold temperatures, particularly while mailing, could potentially damage the piece. Keep away from heat sources and out of direct sunlight.

The Wretch I had Created: To be looked at upside down and sideways on a Tuesday when it's Raining

The eyes are often the most important part of a self-portrait. We recognize each other and empathize through eye contact. Through the eyes we show vulnerability or materialize emotion. They establish intent as they seem to follow you around a room.

I created this self-portrait entirely during manic states. I wanted to give the viewer a glimpse of what it is like to experience and create during a manic episode. During mixed or dysphoric mania, it is common for the pupils of the eyes to widen, making them appear almost black. The lack of detail and reflection of light deviates from what traditional portraitists value most. It creates a void that seems to stare back at you.

I think we create self-portraits (or any art) as a way to deal with our mortality. Our desire to recapture those meaningful yet fleeting moments speaks of our longing to exist through narrative long after we have gone or that moment has passed.

Figure Studies

Bodegas and Roses

My continued exploration of female roles in spiritual narrative and mythology comes to life with vivid color in my portrayal of this matriarchal figure. As an artist and storyteller, interplay of adaptation and rebellion, the old and the new, often find a home in my work. The relationship between Christian conquest, The virgin of Guadalupe, the deity Tonantzin, and how this relates to the universal idea of the mother goddess is the central theme for this piece. I made the abstract bodegas in the background using layers of chalk pastels, chalk seeming like an appropriate medium for a city scape. The crude design and materials used is meant to feel very much like what most people would refer to as ‘outsider art,’ or art that exists beyond the realm of the elite.

Chlamydia Fish

 From a series I started, concerning the oceans, water, and our relationships with those things.

Overfishing is destroying the delicate ecosystems in our oceans. Most of our oxygen comes from the ocean. All of the life on this planet is fiercely dependent on our oceans. If our oceans die, we die. Our oceans are dying. Probably at a faster rate than you think.

Most fisheries are cages in the ocean, which are terrible for the ecosystem and the fish you eat. The fish have hosts of diseases, including chlamydia, and are so grotesque you would never consider eating them if you saw the condition they lived in/what they looked like. Their grey and green sick flesh is dyed pink to make you think it looks ‘normal’ and healthy.

More than half of the plastic pollution in the ocean come from the fishing industry. The save-the-ocean-anti-plastic companies focus on how we can, as individuals, contribute less to plastic pollution. None of them talk about the fishing industry because that’s where the bulk of their donations come from. It’s a cover up. They just tell you not to use plastic spoons. It placates the public into thinking we can take control as individuals while they are making dirty back door deals.

There is no such thing as dolphin safe, fair trade or sustainable. Those are labels they pay to put on their products in the hopes that you will blindly consume. There is still by catch. There are still slaves. Ecosystems on our planet are collapsing. They still deal in illegal, non-sustainable exploitative activities. Don’t let those labels fool you.

Native human populations in overfished areas are starving because they can not get food. Their waters are overfished to the point of starvation. Their livelihood has become increasingly dangerous. It is easier to exploit and enslave these people. Some turn to crime and piracy. A lot of the fishing industry exploits labor. Slavery is still a big part of the fishing industry.

No one is regulating this shit. Governments say they are. That’s a lie. Oceans are big. People get bribed. No one checks up. It is very dangerous to speak out against the fishing industry. They don’t want you to know. Now you know.

What can we do? Consume less fish. Be a wiser consumer. Be more self-sustaining. Stop breeding. The world is overpopulated and we are too destructive of a species to keep growing and consuming the way we are. If you do breed, consider the world your children will one day be living in. Raise them to be aware. Raise them to do better.
