Since one of my key interests is expressing the intimacy of our existence I worked with one subject per painting, all of them women. I am inspired by these moments of solitude, which for me embody the honest essence of each human being.
The use of symbolic content is very important this series, because for me its a way of reinforcing the overall idea of each painting. Mainly, I communicate symbolic meaning through botanical and animal imagery.
