ARTIST STATEMENT (English / Espanol)

The concept behind the piece, LA RECOLECCIÓN, reflects the temporary gathering of art, collectors, galleries, and artists. I see the parking lot as a giant magical toy dispenser; for some coins, you can get your prize. The drawings are based on real coins, some of which are swiss francs.
