Festival De Cine Latino Americano
Estamos orgullosos de anunciar que los ganadores recibirán un premio de cristal diseñado por Jamie Guerrero de Los Ángeles

We are proud to announce that our winners will be receiving a hand made glass award by Jamie Guerrero Glass from Los Angeles.

Before I am an artist I am a craftsman.

My work is about intersecting experiences and the rediscovery and shaping of relics into new forms as a way of self-questioning. Many things can exist as relics. In my vocabulary relics can be ancient artifacts but they can also exist as metaphors for objects in our memory. These memories exist in a place and time and the objects associated to them are what I consider intersecting experiences. These intersecting experiences come in many different forms and tap into our subconscious in different ways. My work seeks to connect to an audience on this level. This connection to someone else’s nostalgia of objects in a place and time is what intrigues me the most.

It is important for me as an artist to create fine crafted glass sculptures because it is exactly this interaction with the material that solidifies and unfolds the rediscovery process for me. It is also significant that these objects be recognizable as a tool for association. Glass is the perfect medium to accomplish these goals because of its ethereal quality and its nature of transparency.

    The Festival de Cine Latino Americano was a great experience for me. From the very beginning it was very organized and communication was pretty effective. Very glad to be part of it even though we didn't get to win an award.
