Bahamas Oil

Oil on fabric. 2018.

Bahamas Oil is a painting that started problematically. I usually never know what I am building, and I let myself be guided by some instinct that manifests itself through my hand. I tried to make a landscape but I felt as if I failed so I covered it with a big black oil stain. Progressively, the image was suggesting a great petroleum spill in which – ironically – some humanoid creatures were submerged, without warning of their own tragic condition. In many cases it is a reflection of our situation, believing that everything will go well, ignoring the fact that we are really going to shit.

Petróleo de Bahamas es un cuadro que comenzó problemáticamente. Generalmente nunca sé lo que estoy construyendo, y me dejo guiar por algún instinto que se manifiesta a través de mi mano. Intenté hacer un paisaje pero me di por vencido y lo tapé con una gran mancha de óleo negro. Progresivamente me iba sugiriendo un gran derrame de petróleo en el que irónicamente estaban sumergidas algunas criaturas humanoides, sin advertir de su propia trágica condición. En muchos casos es un reflejo de nuestra situación, en la que creemos que todo marchará bien, ignorando el hecho de que en realidad estamos yendo a la mierda.
