Alberto Thirion The Durango, Santa Fe NM Member Since April 2009 Artist Statement I think I can be very well positioned as an artist of the border between the U.S. and Mexico, as the art market seeks location of styles.
For several years I lived on a ranch in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, Santa Fe mint and there were born these works there that I discovered that the mountain is sacred.
Buffon said well “Style is the man himself” today only copied the styles and artists are not always true to themselves, almost all paint to sell. I mean paint what sells. I paint what I want, so this is my style.
I’ve always tried to take the precious from the vile, in these works it with all of you, replicas are cheap and very good, the originals are expensive for most people and also I do not like selling. By giving me more money selling prints and I save the original.
