Painting: Acrylic, Oil on Canvas.
This artwork was made in the year 2013, as a part of an ongoing multidisciplinary series entitled "Extraña Correspondencia" - Strange Correspondence. In this series I explore the relationship between human beings and chaos, and the metaphors that such relation may symbolize. In the paintings I insert female subjects in chaotic, urban-like and slightly surrealistic scenarios. I explore the limits of the painting surface when cutting out, re-copying and reorganizing the space and the objects, often alternating between abstraction and figurativism, eliminating third grounds, saving fragments of preliminary layers or leaving a generous blank area on the canvas.
These paintings talk in a playful, ironic way, about the uncertainty of human existence and the contrast between our internal, emotional nature vs. the facade we present to the world.
In "Once Upon a time" a young woman with a welcoming hand gesture invites the viewer to enter a space where colorful closed doors are stacked one against the other. I saw these doors at a house that was being demolished in Bogotá and was compelled to paint them.
