Sueños de libertad II
The series Sueños de Libertad talks about Monterrey’s current situation. Stories of violence and crime together with social and political instability from the city and the country in general. The work is a pictorial yearning that grew from the necessity of showing images of peace and social stability against the violence that happens throughout the city.
Dead flowers as symbols of decadent nature, life without hope, nonexistent green areas and parks where nobody plays anymore. The emptiness that is now present in many of our public spaces, wishing we could regain these areas that now seem, as they were unreal and nonexistent to the people that live in Monterrey.
Daily work symbolizes reconstruction. The flower themes symbolize fertility, life, death, and the city’s and society’s decadency. The renovation desire not always achieved and sometimes failed. The surreal parks and green areas are a reference to the absence of safe places, metaphor of the nonexistent nowadays.
