The momentary truth of the pale and radical human nature.
The contradictory character of the chaotic world.
The real existence under the sky of edgy culture: gender, role, balance,
disguise and dependence. Resembles dismantled, pants of organs, in
desolation, murmuring and vainly hope.
There is an aching point in everyone’s heart.
It never tells, repairing itself silently, it is the human wound.
I want to paint it, through the faces.
