Fauna is an intimate project, it was born when I moved to live in a distant city.
The figures in Fauna are interpretations of those small objects that one sees when closing his eyes and when the eyelids are arranged as a pink flesh background. I wanted to try like this, how we try to find familiarity in everything we perceive, especially in new places where everything seems unknown.
That familiarization as an indispensable adaptation strategy.
I close my eyes to avoid the fear of something new, an evasion where I only trust the imaginary figures that live on my eyelids.
I open my eyes again to see that in these unknown places, there are remnants of those figures and therefore, the places become familiar.
A selection of this work has been shown at ARTE ACTUAL, Quito.
