Happy to present a project that I have been working on for the past two years. Home is a body of work exhibited in a residential house on the 14th and 15th of April on 25th street in Wynwood, Miami. The house will be demolished together with the paintings on the 16th of April.
The Home project explores the life of Ana and Julio Serrano, a Puerto Rican couple who moved to Miami in 1962 with their two sons Julio and Anibal. They bought the house on 25th street and would remain in this home until their last days.
I got in touch with Anibal to commemorate their story and the life of this community. Julio and Ana where a beloved couple, by their extended family and neighbors. They celebrated big parties and get togethers. Anibal recalls one Christmas where two hundred people came to their home to play music, eat and dance. The house is the last standing on the street, a neighborhood remembered by the Serrano family as a lively and vibrant place.
This project intends to underline the changes our generation has brought to the area and our communities generally. The area is now largely developed and gentrified as an arts district and is growing to other neighborhoods like Little Haiti and Overtown.
This is a tribute to the story of this home and neighborhood. Intending to celebrate and preserve the lives of the everyday families from the past and embrace the ones we still have in our present.
Make sure to be there for the vernissage on 14th 4pm - 7:30pm and again on the 16th for the finessage from 10am - 12pm and the demolition of the house will start at 12pm.

Oil on canvas, 2016. “Skull” is an ongoing series of paintings based on a real skull. I have been told that it dates from the 19th century and was found in Bolivia. It is a Juvenile, between 8 and 10 years old, probably female. She was also the victim of a blunt force trauma above the left eye socket causing a linear fracture along the parietal bone and most likely the cause of her death.
Skulls have been a very recurred symbol for artist and thinkers through out our history. The concept of the show is closely related to the series “Rouen Cathedral” of Monet. Where he did over 30 paintings of the same view of this cathedral in different moments of the year. Arguing that everything is in constant change. Other thinkers like Heraclitus had a similar approach saying “there is nothing permanent except change” or “No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man”. On this series I have a similar approach but also with the intention of showing a rational or emotional change in each one of the skulls. I’m interested in the distance between the subject it self and my interpretation of it, from a formal approach and also a historical one.
This is a tribute to this girl and a study towards existentialism with the purpose of creating empathy.
