You're welcome to this collection.
One thing that calls my attention as an artist is the man and its precarious conditions. So, sickness, pathological behavior, forensics… are just some of the topics I explore. I find them fascinating.
In 2021, I created "The Relentless" where I picture people that have social malfunctions and disorders which drive them to commit crime. The tragedy of their lives and the paths in which they have crossed in the lives of others, are the impulsive elements that compel me to create this series.
I also included in this collection–the manhunters–who are the professionals who pursue these outlaws. I think they too, are relentless. Those who fight "monsters" are also part of this collection because if they "... gaze long enough into the abyss, the abyss gazes back on them." (1) I believe the manhunters' work causes to them profound harm. They become as injured as those they pursue, only differently.
My work in this collection isn't an apology for crime, it's my interpretation of the criminal phenomenon.
1 The above quote is a freedom I have allowed myself to use in this context. It's from Friedrich Nietzsche, as we may know. It's also used by Robert Ressler (1937-2013, US), a FBI agent that coined the term "serial killer" during the 1970s. After his government service, Ressler became a crime consultant and author.
My Art Initial Resources
As an artist, I use all the resources I have in hand to create a piece. Some of my tools are oil painting, charcoal, acrylics, digital painting, colored pencils, 3D digital sculpting, clay sculpting, photographs of other creators and stills from true crime documentary videos–giving the artists their due credit, of course–are all good resources for my work.
I've sometimes mixed, very interestingly, acrylics with digital painting, such as in a work I like very much The Deaf Man No. 7. For this painting, I first made up a portrait, The Deaf Man No. 6. I digitized the latter, distorted it in PhotoShop and, using the same software, created the character's body in a pink environment.
Another interesting work using mixed mediums is one I recently created. The work I'm referring to is Inmate No. 7, where I portray my interpretation of the character's life in two different mediums: a painting (oil and acrylic on canvas) and a physical sculpture (plasticine, clay, plaster, cement, and acrylic paint). I present these two artworks as a unit. This to provoke a speech, a certain interaction between both works.
