corolario del confinamiento

Tecnica: mixed media (oil on gold leaf y digital)

With this piece I wanted to convey what the quarantine did during the pandemic: nature around the world was at its best since so many years ago, eventhough confinement was never obligatory in some countries including Mexico, too many activities were stopped and those of us who were able to stay at home for more than a year turned the pace and the dynamics of the world around (for a while).

The pause of almost every cultural, social, commercial, and leisure activities as we knew, deflected a change of perspective in regard to our relationship with others and with nature. My piece tries to reflect the stillness of humankind and its affectation in the world, the great impact it had on nature. That although for politicians, financiers and economists, the most recent pandemic of the Anthropocene only generated crises, for nature it was something beneficial, and for many of us (or perhaps not so many), it was an invitation to grow new ties and roots with nature. The mandatory stop of the way we used to live before COVID-19, challenged us to be creative in the confinement and when leaving it. In my piece I also reserve a small/great tribute to the deceased, to those who did not arrive or will not arrive after… But they also made me constantly aware of my finitude and that of others, my illustration recognizes death and life, without one the other does not exist, just as stillness gives meaning to movement and vice versa.
