Project Description

My paintings are based on my hispanic culture and catholic religion. I use modeling paste to create dimension within the paintings. I create this dimension within the Quincenera by bringing the cake forth and using the paint to also manipulate the dimension of the piece. In El Dia de los muertos I add dimension to the skull, flowers, bread, basket and candles. In Las posadas I gave it dimension to the bat and the Pinata. Through my pieces I try to express how I see my Hispanic culture through these events
