Fear of living in a tied-up lied-up world. 

OF BEING BITTEN, EATEN OR LOST

2014. 1.60 x 160 m. Acrylic on canvas. 

The 1st of a series of 5 paintings of new pop surrealism style. Blue, red, white and grey figures emerge from a golden background in the middle of a chaotic sea. A central figure walks among some buildings that are still visible. Gender identity, risk taking, humor and existentialism are the main issues of this painting. 

Fear OF BEING PART OF A

SELF-DESTRUCTIVE SYSTEM

2014. 1.65 X 1.65 m. Acrylic on canvas.

A pop surrealist style mixed with an expressionist red-toned background that has a remanescence of illustration images and ink. The central figure is a submitted industrialized animal, between cow and pig (that from a far seems like a golden elephant), made of coins and being cut up in blank filets, stands behind another key figure, that of a chemically intervened tree inhabited by a scientist, also being cut up until it becomes a chair. Around these central figures we can see others like a line of consumers, a family consuming the money meal, an ocean being poluted, industrialized scientists producing plastic dolls out of their computer cables, a mythological primitive creature possessing a scientist, the suburbs consuming tv and being told about happinness, the harvest of artificially grown food by a proffessional and a line full of people hanging, not knowing if their being transported for work or to be consumed as well; all this invites the spectator to react facing this huge challenge for society which is to create a new dinamic system less harmful to animals, the world and human kind. 

DIALOG WITH MY FEARS     SERIES

This subject first appeared on sketches and small format drawings around 2010. It became important to explore the matter and the content in a larger format. That is how the series was born. It began in late 2013 with the first painting. The second and the third painting were developed during 2014.
