About the art
In the spring of 2021 I visited the countryside with some friends, visiting their relatives. From a photo I took of them, their grandma and my girlfriend I took everything out. I deleted the context. I wanted to see what happened if I created a new location, a sci-fi geometric context to change the understanding of the image. The painting presented a lot of struggles in the making giving that the set up I created was harder to represent than I thought. Using a lot of purple which is a transparent color so I had to be more careful with the layers. I also had issues with the portrait on the right, I painted it three times until I was happy with it. Working at this painting in the fall for a month, at some point I wanted to stop. My friend's grandma died and I felt uneasy painting the picture. In the end I was able to finish the work and be very happy with it.
