Actually the works, a triptych are not paintings but a series of bas-reliefs. The work is part of the Ex Voto cycle that is a work in progress of a sequence of ancestral figures that derives form the Brain Drain work (a sculpture and a generative video).
“With Totem I have created ex-votos, idols or altars that seem accumulate mysterious energies. They were
born to exorcise my inner demons, but then they reach a balance between gravity and lightness, between
tragedy and irony of life. However they help me in a storytelling of resilience.
The scale is changeable, a rhythm that ranges from the smallest to the gigantic, the shapes are statuary
subjects or they pervade the space becoming a container. From that universe, ancestral and enigmatic
forms, that I am still exploring, have also sprung from surgical sectioning, if we may say so.”
