BABEL

 

BABEL is a series of 8 paintings. The first association one gets when using the word BABEL as a symbol, is chaos and miscommunication. Every evening people can realize what kind of impressions have entered their minds in a chaotic way, as the day passed by, hundreds thousands of impressions have registered, and although most of them do not have anything to do with each other they can influence each other. If this is good or bad, is not the subject. They just do it. How conscious are we of that? or do we have to be conscious at all!

I have collected icons, through newspapers, magazines, memories and any other possible way. All these images confront end influence each other between the borders of the painted canvas. Therefor their truth, is possible that it is not the real truth!...
