Vargas states, "My ongoing dialoque between earth, tree, and female forms is the way to penetrate a deeper understanding of my journey in self-awareness. I am channelling my primal energies in the experience of the art process, using materials of the earth to make an iconography that incorporates psychic symbolism with historic connotations. This concretization of psychic and primal elements brings an integration and grounding of myself."
