In this painting, I have incorporated different levels of textures along with the canvas that escapes the two-dimensional plane. Its material challenges the viewer generating a close and warm feeling. I then subtly applied blue paint in a light tone and metallic paint details. For this work, I wanted to capture the balance between mind and soul. On the one hand, I filled the visual field with cracks that can be interpreted as the manifestation of different states of consciousness. On the other hand, the applied blue paint is associated with temperance and rationality. In this difficult stage, our emotions are altered and our spirit is broken. But I would like to convey a mantle of peace within so much chaos.
