Flor de la sombra 2020
It is a painting that recalls the symbolic power that precedes us as an image prefixed by the hybrid convenience between species where it expresses loneliness, waiting, hope for beauty.
the desire to conquer the civilizing impulse has reached life as a value of experimentation. This painting does not want to forget the bitch in space because we still hear her barks of incomprehension
It reflects a state of uncertainty and play that goes between the internal and the external through a language barrier due to the exchange of the body, its extinct appearance and the force of meaning. "Boca" resembles a laboratory of humor, the cynical and the mixture of confused directionalities in the direction of vertical as if looking at the entity.
