There somewhere

series of 60

2020 | 17 x 24 cm | Watercolor on paper | Unique pieces

The feeling of sinking into a dark lake and the fear of disappearing into it, as well as the self questioning of whether am I actually sinking or emerging from it, is what prompted the pictorial compositions.

This is a pictorial diary documenting my psychic and emotional state, every day at 4 o'clock in the morning for a period of 40 days. Parallel to this process, I was documenting my early mornings for 3 months by means of video IR. The video work was entitled "Cada día a las 4".

At first I made a selection of 20 paintings which I titled "Tercera Cuarentena", but later I needed to continue painting. The joint series "There somewhere" consists of 60 paintings.

Both, the paintings and the video where part of the exhibition "Auf der Suche nach der Verlorene Einheit" curated by Marcello Farabegolli in the gallery Meno Parkas in Kaunas, Lithuania.
