Sculptural Vessels

This body of work explores the vessel form as a liminal space in which alchemy or change takes place. In this space, biomorphic forms reminiscent of steam, clouds, or smoke emerge, giving form to this phenomenon of change or cultural confluence. As a first generation Cuban-American artist, I have a very personal connection to the concept of the melting pot as a metaphorical vessel. In this context, I entertain ideas of duality and/or struggle expressed formally through the relationships between inside an out, surface and form, or organic and geometric.
