The Family Album paintings recreate a middle-class Mexican family in the author's childhood during the 80's in his daily life based on the family photo album where the events of party, game, vacations, school and spreading.
Since the 2000s I created large-scale works resignifying family photographic archives on a collective memory that was interrupted after the 1985 earthquake in Tlatelolco where I lived then. The new series of oils in small format is based on the Polaroid photos of that time recreating in painting a more intimate atmosphere, nostalgia and with an address to the social context of the Amusement Park Kingdom Adventure where perhaps through the history of the whale Keiko was born in our society a fragile environmental awareness and respect for animals.
I have always been fascinated by the idea of Time ... and as past, present and future they coexist and overlap simultaneously in our memory. The relationship of the timeline with the paintings provides details of the context surrounding them, for example, the painting "Fuertes" in December 1983, the return of the Jedi is released in Mexico Star Wars Episode VI, in the painting on children's necks the heads of Chewbacca and Darth Vader hang, souvenirs with sweets that at that time were sold outside the cinemas.
The concept of sustainable development is the result of concerted action by nations to promote a model of global economic development compatible with environmental conservation and social equity.
His background goes back to the 50s of the twentieth century, when concerns about the damage to the environment caused by the Second World War germinate. However, it is until 1987 when the United Nations World Commission on Environment and Development (CMMAD), chaired by Dr. Gro Harlem Brundtland, presents the report “Our Common Future”, also known as the “Brundtland Report”, in which the best known definition of sustainable development is disseminated and coined:
“Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” (CMMAD, 1987: 24)
Sustainable development has become a “political manifesto”, that is, it has been raised as a powerful proclamation that is addressed to citizens, civil organizations, businesses and governments to promote actions, ethical principles and new institutions aimed at a common goal: sustainability.

"We all know that art is not truth, Art is a lie that makes us realize truth, at least the truth that is given us to understand" Picasso.
The character of Pinocchio created in the 19th century by the Italian Carlo Collodi and later spread worldwide by Walt Disney, is for me a continuous idea related to the press. Pinocchio always tells us the truth even if he doesn't want it, in one way or another he gives himself away and it is that constant effort that as a society human beings integrate reason with our emotions and interests proper to what we live in our own flesh, with which we build a ethics in our lives.
