Inspired by the Aftermath of Hurricane Maria. After the passage of Hurricane Maria in 2017, I immersed myself into my work to release frustrations and heartache. This journey led me to explore intuitive and abstract painting. To me Abstract Expressionism is a new way of creating art, I reinvent what was there yesterday, changing the nature of the painting with new energy everyday until I feel satisfied and the work is completed.
This piece depicts the destruction of the passage of the Hurricane, leaving the grounds in Puerto Rico unsettled and in a state of chaos. We learned through this destruction that love, empathy and solidarity can rebuild not only our material surroundings but also heal the soul.
