Memories, lithograph, 30" x 22" - 1992
Available for Sale

welcome

Through our images we are the creators of culture and it is our responsibility that they are of our times. My work depicts honesty and promotes an attitude towards existing reality; a confrontational attitude, one of change rather than adaptability - images of our time and for our contemporaries.

I am much more articulate and able to express myself more eloquently through my art. It is with this voice that I attempt to communicate, especially to that silent and often ignored populace of Chicano, Mexican and Central American working class, along with other disenfranchised people of the world. This form allows me to awaken consciousness, to reveal reality and to actively work to transform it. What better function for art at this time? A voice for the voiceless.
