"Boundless" is part of my twelve piece "Sacred Love" series, which is a visual celebration of the power of romantic love. The figures are stylized to look almost like the illustrations of a fairy tale book, because it is those moments of magic, however fleeting, that keeps us seeking that union with the opposite energy polarity.
I often depict interracial couples. This is not only because it's the reality of our world right now, in all of its glorious diversity - I, myself, am the product of interracial love - but because these couples not only have to struggle with their own personal differences, but often society and cultural differences are challenges that their love must overcome. And that is worthy of celebration indeed!
The artwork itself is 18"X21", but it's 24"X27" with double matting of white over steel gray and a black frame. This piece can be seen as a diptych together with another piece titled, "Boundless Two"
Born in the USA, but I grew up in Chile. That land of wine, poetry, and magic inspired in me early on to create my own visual language. I call it “visual poetry”: people, landscapes and objects selected and stylized to capture an emotion. Back in the USA, in Nebraska, the solitude of endless skies and prairie drew me within to my own realms of imagination. Even though I have a Minor in Art as part of my Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Nebraska in Lincoln, much of my work is self-explored. I got my MA in London, where I was inspired by the great masterpieces, in particular, that of Impressionistic and Post-Impressionistic artists from whom I've "borrowed" some of my techniques. Here in Los Angeles, California, where I currently reside, I continue my search to give visual expression to the inner experience of our outer world. I'm inspired by the beautiful diversity of people, the variety of environments and the vibrancy of the art scene that currently surrounds me .
