To a world beyond ours, another world,
where borders were non-existence.
Where we were once one with the earth and,
where concepts did not exist,
in either form nor image.
What was, was, and always will be.
I invite you to this world,
which before we discover,
we shall discover our own selves.
I take and interpret from this world,
in my own language,
a world, that for some, is from the past,
stuck in time,
it nourishes our present.
It is one of our biggest necessities:
to know our origins.
I invite you to enjoy,
through of my compositions,
in colors, lines, figures, and textures,
the message that our ancestors,
May we listen and interpret
with our eyes and fingers.
May we recognize
our first footprints,
from the four cardinal directions,
of this new world, we call America.
I leave you with the encounter,
of that world with this one,
of the old with the new,
of which I participate as a passionate admirer.
