VIEW IN MY ROOM
Drawing: Graphite, Ink on Cardboard.
Looking at the series Drops of Madness is like entering an ancestors gallery. The spectator’s visions, mainly of children/ghosts, are being overwhelmed by something unexpected, restless, and staggering. Faces of “youngsters” often portrayed in frontal positions, stare at the viewer, arousing a sense of awe and submission. In this manner, one enters a dark fairy-tale where heroic children – that recall those from the Grimm Brothers’ tales – intend to save us from ogres’ and witches’ violence, thereby adopting cruel methods themselves, likewise becoming tormentors and victims.
These protagonists let appear deep psychological features which become mysterious, that turn them into messengers of the surfacing subconscious, something that all cultures seem to have in common
