I was born in Venezuela where mountains have strong presence in the landscape. In 2012 I moved to Canada where I discovered painting. In this piece I used the structure of a mountain range from Venezuela but I added over it different layers of paint and colour. I’m keeping the same mountain structure in relation to the time I spent in my country and my experiences there. The layers of colourful paint are a metaphor for all the new knowledge and experiences I’ve gained since I came to Canada.
