The era of mental illness - The opponent is in my head.
Resin relief mounted on the wall.
The mind is the most powerful detentor of our well-being, we are dominated by our thoughts that are usually quite negative and destructive. We do not realize that what is inside us is only the reflection of what is inside us. To have a full life, we must defeat our opponent: ourselves. The only way to defeat it is to take power away from fear, judgments, comparisons, thoughts that make us vibrate low. In this work the repeated and aligned black figures represent that dark world generated by the repetition of thoughts that overwhelm and allow energy to become low, heavy and dense. The gold-colored strip that highlights the 13 circular figures refers to the solution that will cause us to get out of that state of unhappiness: light, peace of mind, the repetition of new positive beliefs.
