Soñando Con Pomarrosas, my new Multimedia piece.

I battled with this piece for weeks, not knowing what the end result would be. At the end I destroyed it in pieces and reconstructed it again. It has a lot of meaning for me, one that I did not anticipated.

True acceptance of finding beauty in things as they are. Beauty is imperfect, impermanent and incomplete... Wabisabi way... 

Here is a video of the process, thanks for reading!!

The process of making art

What is my creative process? Well, is not as fancy as a lot of people think. My process starts by convincing myself that I can do it, that I am enough, that it doesn’t matter if I ruined the canvas, that I have to just have fun. And then, this battle with myself starts, the one that is trying to win over technique and just focus on expression.

Not everyday I feel like painting, but I just show up, make a mark, and see what it leads me to. Creative expression is a battle with what you already know and what you are just about to learn. Is taking a breath, take a seat and jut stare at the painting, question your every move, and letting go of control.

At the end, it doesn’t matter who wins, the only thing that matters is that you survived and you need to get ready for the next one.
