Description: Three unnamed paintings. Oil on fiberboard panels. Additionally, some acrylic, glue and old clothes.
The making of these three paintings was a process. It was an awkward process in which I found myself questioning several aspects of my life. My palette was limited to five warm colors: burnt amber, yellow ochre, cadmium yellow, cadmium red and bright red. When I paint, I process stuff. Like my palette, the information that cycles through me is limited. Some topics that influenced me during the process were: my family’s expectations, my destiny (if one even exists), the limitations of art and, finally, being free. The meaning of freedom and how to achieve it was like a nagging pain, I couldn’t get it off my head and it hurt. I don’t particularly believe in conclusions, but I did learn that my way of accessing freedom is to paint.
