Art Description

Painting: Ink, Marker, Pastel and Dye Transfer on Wood.

Work done on board. The background is a collage of different maps attached by transfer to the support. The figure is drawn with fine-tipped markers and colored with reddish pastels. Although it may seem simply a work that speaks of travel you have to appreciate the ironic relationship between the title and the image. This picture talks about what is not seen in it. Talk more about the traveler than the trip. It is a metaphor for overcoming adversity, in my case from the experience of leukemia and bone marrow transplantation. It refers to how we overcome adversity when we have been stripped of comfort, or in spite of it, when we face the hardest trials of life without more tools than ourselves. It's like making the road barefoot.
Obra realizada sobre tabla. El fondo es un collage de diferentes mapas adheridos por transfer al soporte. La figura están dibujadas con rotuladores de punta fina y coloreadas con pasteles de tonos rojizos. Aunque pueda parecer simplemente una obra que habla de viajes hay que apreciar la relación irónica entre el título y la imagen. Este cuadro habla de lo que no se ve en él. Habla más del viajero que del viaje. Es una metáfora de la superación de las adversidades, en mi caso de la experiencia de la leucemia y el trasplante de médula ósea. Hace referencia a como superamos las adversidades cuando hemos sido despojado de las comodidades, o a pesar de ello, cuando nos enfrentamos a las pruebas más duras de la vida sin más herramientas que nosotros mismos. Es como hacer el camino descalzo.
