of my earliest memories as a child was the way death and religion played an
important role in my family's life. My parents were born in Mexico and had traditional
beliefs, and their beliefs made their way into my subconscious. The fact that
many of those beliefs seemed to render no logical explanation has also influenced
me. These unanswered questions find a home in my work, still evoking the mystery,
fear, and irony of those vivid memories of my past. I do not claim to understand
these questions. I just paint and let them reveal themselves to me.
