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
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.
