This essay explains the development of the painting series titled Fecunding. It explains how these works were influenced by a belief in the value of diversity seeded in my Mexican-American background. A personal quest for knowledge instigated by curiosity and search for truth led me to investigate eclectic themes through books, magazines, television, the internet, documentaries, and conversations. This broad search showed a shifting world where circumstances are constantly changing pointing to the relativity of truth. While this belief left me feeling groundless at times, it also created possibilities in my work and life. Thus, these paintings are energized by diverse themes and an unstable semblance.
