Ritmos De Los Muertos (Rhythm of the Dead)

My fascination with how artists depicted death began with the paintings of the Renaissance. Creating a portrait of something no longer living was another way humans processed life through the curiosity of death. Even in my own heritage and youth, I was exposed to the beautiful rituals and celebrations that can be attached to the mourning process. Groomed into a faith whose religious art depicted (graphically) the very death of a prophet. Between 2005 -2008 I  set out on a series of paintings and drawings that tried to distill the imagery from my youth in a way that was macabre, beautiful, and honest.
