A mild-mannered surrealist, Angeles composes gentle dream images without a hint of nightmares. - Mark Jenkins of The Washington Post
Anyone who views my art can see that I derive a lot of inspiration from nature and more specifically birds. I see birds as free spirits; not bound by the rules of gravity. This speaks to me in a number of ways but mostly the desire to free my mind of personal inhibitions. I let go of what logic or reason allows and let the reality of my imagination come to life. Like a bird disregarding the pull of gravity and soaring into the wind.
My most recent paintings depict color dripping from my subjects in order to represent how I literally pour myself into my artwork. I like to think that a part of me lives in each of my paintings through this transfusion of energy.
