When conceiving this artwork, I was inspired by Lars Von Trier’s movie Melancholia.
It’s about the contemplative attitude during a catastrophic event, about the refusal to face a tough reality. My artwork is a visual metaphor of human weakness counterposed to the imminent force of nature… or maybe chance?
It belongs to my Magic Expressionism series. It is not expressionism, surrealism, post-modernism, or new abstract etc. It’s a paraphrase to the concept of Magic Realism – that generally describes the well known artistic movement in the South American Literature, but not only -, brought to the field of visual arts.
