“Engineering plays an important role in almost every sphere of our life. For Houston residents in particular, the energy industry is embedded within the rich and diverse culture of our vibrant city. My art intends to communicate my admiration, enthusiasm and reflect the beauty of industrial design as a tribute to human ingenuity and the field that I am proud to be part of.”
- F. A. Carrión.
