Bio

POZO--101x76cm.jpg

My visual system is a synthesis of my perception of nature, life and the world. That world of the tangible and at the same time ephemeral diversity of the forests of Costa Rica that prevails in my plastic proposal that I translate in sensual forms and metaphors.

My gestural and lyric abstract language is as broad as the wind when it blows on the trees, in that constant becoming and getting rid of life.

In my process, the morphologies I portray on the canvas are routes to the freedom of the cosmos and its multidimensional spaces and time, full of color and mysteries to be deciphered.

The colors of nature, the topography of natural territories, the fractalness of rivers, roads and vegetation in front of the movement of light and water, inspire me. 

Below is a summary of my biography, with the most relevant studies, exhibitions, awards and publications.
