An art exhibition that proposes the creation of new muses!!!
Current and diverse Muses that do not constitute a privilege only for artists, but are of and for all in general, muses that inspire a social transformation. Because, although our desire to achieve a better society is immense, there is no other possible way than that of an internal transformation.
It was said in ancient Greece, that the muses were in charge of suddenly appearing before an artist or a poet bringing with them the enlightened truth of a new creation. They were the ones who gave artists the gift of inspiration.
Charming muses, divine conceptions that raises our eyes and our perception towards a better feeling full of possibilities ... Or dark demons, brutal monsters that plunge us into disdain for what will never be solved ...
As an artist, being inspired by muses, I decide to create muses for everyday life that encourage and provoke the gift of inspiration at any step and at every opportunity.
Inspiration is more than a mental and physical force; it is emotional and spiritual, it is a direct shortcut of connection between the essence of our soul and the entire world existence, removing mental barriers to pass across the physical and real plane. That moment called inspiration is the origin of creation, the origin of ideas, transforming the way we perceive our capabilities and idle nature, with the propelling of any person from apathy to possibility.
Confirmed by neuroscience, the influence thinking has over mental structures and behaviors, can create outstanding qualitative life changes. Therefore, the creation of personal muses for a better everyday living, for every person, inevitably will shape a better social transformation.

Here is represented the intricate relationship between culture, use of patterns,
textiles and fibers, color implementation, local native materials
and use of ornamentation as the construction of social identity.
A cultural identity that is forged over time since the first inhabitants, passing through migratory fluctuations and overcoming the constant evolutionary changes.
Exploring and playing with all these elements in the symbiotic relationship between cultural and personal identity, give us the possibility to choose, change and reshape the importance of uniqueness in human life.

"We are emotions and we are feelings,"everything else are circumstances, decisions and memories.
as well as a painter use colors to create their art works, people use thoughts to create our reality.
Those thoughts, which are external elements to us, have the wonderful ability to be observed, evaluated and transformed; providing - through that action- the possibility to live a better life.
My intention in this series of paintings "portraits of a thought", is to ponder and bring to mind this creative potential we all have, as we can without realizing it, become someone dominated or trapped by our own thoughts.
