“The human being is full of contradictions. Homo Sapiens (in Latin, sapiens means “one who knows”) spends a good part of his existence trying not to know. This tendency to deny, probably the source of all psychoses, is the main activity of the ego. It is so much easier to deny or erase or eliminate what bothers us, even if it never works.
Today, our worldviews are being challenged more than ever. And instead of using crises to evolve, we tend to mask the problems with a veneer of outdated ideas. We rewrite textbooks, we rename streets, we sterilize languages, we censor everything that goes beyond. For the common good, of course.
I believe that to accept reality without wanting to deny it, a good dose of humor is needed.
Here, in 14 paintings, is an opportunity to laugh at our contradictions and, perhaps, to gain some sapience.”
