“I do not share the precariousness or brevity in my landscapes, that is why they are vast and prolific in shapes and colors. I look for nuances that incite interpretation and facilitate empathy. Although I am aware that there are lives that fit in 5 minutes or scarce square centimeters, I prefer the poly-perspectives, the multiple angles and the contrasts tearing the monotony.” (Ray Leguizamo)
