On my first year away from home
(a creative birth)
These are “little daily” moments, “pearls” found throughout the year in Barcelona, continued from Rio Negro Llora Sangre. This has been the hardest series to complete mostly because it has to do with my own growth. A year has passed and I can at least make a vague assemblage of them, but it sometimes feels too early or too late. And in putting them in this post i somehow feel they are where they should, all together, woven.
Recently, in the editing process, after considering it for quite a while, I thought it to be best to unite two different photographs in an embrace, that is, using the format of liuxi17 ’s works. Since i feel the format done by the artist succeeds to articulate a visual language, which i feel most comfortable in. Something that didn’t feel right when i tried overlapping them as i did in Ixchel , also as i wrote on January that series ended.
So in this transition phase, since, to me, art is a conversation with other artists (both living and past), i linked other artists and experiences somewhere within each photo post particularly. As i am not one, alone. In doing this, i hope to weave meaning/conversations within an already existent community of people.
