Artist Statement Submitted 2018

My work has a symbolic style and I use mythologies from eastern and western civilizations. Syncretism is the combination or fusion of different beliefs, philosophies, mythologies or religions, emphasizing an underlying unity that allows an inclusive approach to other faiths. Syncretism has expressions in art and culture that can join together. I use Syncretism to develop patterns that reveal how our current culture opens itself into its different functions to reflect our way of living, hopes and mistakes.
The purpose with my work is to find a way to communicate our history so people can understand that we have choices as to our present and future. Prophecies will be the same today as they were in ancient times. They become alive when the patterns that created that prophecy are repeated in history. They are a warning, that history will be repeated if the patterns are not acknowledged and behaviors changed.
