Artwork Statement

The human being in general has always faced highly complex psychological and philosophical dilemmas as in itself, the human condition is. To distinguish good and evil, the meaning of life, why we are alive, the elusive of time, and that is time itself, the need to create new real mental worlds and the possibility of conquering them. One of them particularly always has been present in humanity throughout its history. The need to reinvent his home, create new ones and conquer others, persists in the human thought of all history. Imagining a new world, discovering it or creating it is a kind of beloved torment that persecutes us all.
With the iconography of images of cosmonauts, divers, globes and other attempts to create new worlds and their conquerors as good heirs and children of Matías Pérez.
