States of the Matter

Hello, everyone! Let me introduce my latest digital art triptych: States of the Matter.

The last year has been a wild ride, isn’t it? The Covid pandemic, the political problems going out of control, the war and a huge health and climate crisis that shouldn’t take any of us by surprise at this point. I have not been writing about my personal status for well over two years, so her goes a little recap. Due to personal reasons, I started a personal lockdown a few months before the pandemic even started. I was in need of time for myself. I needed to be alone, to fix myself and to find my being again the mirror. It was a rough year for all of us, can’t deny it, but some were carrying heavy emotional baggage from before.

Just when lockdown was over in my country, Spain, a few months later, the final nail was put in the coffin and I had to survive a break-up. That issue, for better or worse, gave me some more rough months, but I’m known for going forward at the face of this situations, and once again, I used art to get over it.

When I started to feel better, I could see that my mind went through something similar to what happens to matter: a series of events led me to disappear in order to find a new version of myself. I went through a process similar to the one that happens to the matter: I evaporated and vanished from the pain, I turned into liquid tears and then I transformed into a brand new, solid jewel. It’s been a hard process, but here I am again.

So here’s the outcome of that pain and that growth, too.

I have been a bit silent these latest years regarding new art. I have been creating a lot but I decided to save everything on a drawer until the right time came, so I decided to start wth this digital art triptych. I’ll be publishing my new illustrations in the following weeks, so stay tuned to my social media channels: Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. I hope you all are safe and sound in these crazy, crazy times! 🙂
