I am a Colombian-American mix media sculptor and installation artist heavily interested in geopolitical issues of violence and human suffering. In my work I explore themes of human suffering, violence, abuse of power, politics, control and hypocrisy. These topics are all part of a larger social commentary regarding the disposable manner in which human life is treated. Around the world individuals are seen and treated as disposable, expendable or despised especially in times of armed conflicts. I describe this disregard for human lives by overlaying the perceived worth of the others to that of vermin; human lives terminated with the same lack of thought and empathy. In addition to this metaphorical association, insects and entomology also inspire elements of anonymity, plurality, scale and identification. With the somber content of my work, I intend to pay tribute to the victims as well as bring awareness to their suffering.
