"Dark moon.
La sombra de la luz me hunde en la oscuridad."


From the series and solo exhibition "Fabula and drama de la soledad". This image is from the second part of the series.


Fabula and drama de la soledad

Loneliness is the human condition that English language has wisely divided into two different words to detect the two sides of "being alone". It created the word "solitude" to express the glory of being alone and created the word "loneliness" to express the pain of being alone. Although in our daily lives it's difficult to distinguish between these moods, we must do it consistently to really understand the condition in which each of us is can be at some point of his life. Only when we understand and accept these two sides of solitude/loneliness we can live with awareness and reach an inner balance that generates well-being.

Fabula y drama de la soledad is a work in 2 parts, technically and artistically different from each other, where I explore these two sides of solitude in its essence: tale and drama.

In the first part of the story, the tale, lives the gardener's wife, a woman who takes care of her garden in an arid and desert world where all things are struggling to survive. Being the only woman on earth, she fills her heart by caring for her roses. The rose is the symbol of love, care and attention that the women reserves for her beloved: plants, animals, nature, her husband, herself. The rose is also a symbol of the soul that needs to be cultivated and nurtured to be kept alive. The gardener's wife tale is a story of solitude, reflection, love and self-esteem. A simple story and simply human.

In the second part, the drama, a woman lives the experience of loneliness, accompanied by pain and suffering. It is the primordial human condition, where consciousness shows the weaknesses and doubts of existence. Here loneliness is experienced as torture, an infinite abyss from which it's difficult to rise again, and at the same time as an inevitable way to know and recognize oneself. The woman, an ordinary woman, talks with her emptiness and fears in order to exorcise the darkness in which she's involved. The drama of loneliness is the symbol of an inner growth, an inevitable way to reach the acceptance of oneself and be totally free.

As Arthur Schopenhauer said: “A man can be himself only so long as he is alone; and if he does not love solitude, he will not love freedom; for it is only when he is alone that he is really free.”
