Airbrush acrylics on canvas
About the artwork
Only the noise of a faint wind.
The clouds that flow swept by the wind, the wires of grass that agitated.
This is a dystopian world of Ex Naturae .
There is no recognizable human presence, despite the predominant face.
An expanse of lush green grass to the horizon and a threatening sky with a swollen clouds that heralds something imminent.
This face of young woman, serene, expressionless, stands from the ground.
It almost seems like a monument that emerges from the lawn, an archaeological memory, a memory of a remote human presence, one Stonehenge of a distant future: a monument to remember a geological era of this planet in which the Humanity was the master, replacing a God, that claim to create himself.
It is human.
The eyes. Eyes without pupil.
Absolutely unexpressive, empty, without a soul.
And then, that portion of head in chromed steel …
And the questions flock to mind by observing this painting.
What will remain of the Anthropocene , of the Geological Era dominated by humanity, on this planet?
