About this artwork

Lately I was going around the idea that if pain would be possible to be painted how would it look like?

This thought was in my mind over and over trying to give it shape and color.

Pain has millions of faces, has so many layers.
It could be ancient, something that happened when you where a child, been sick, loosing someone or trying desperately to have eternal beauty … emotions that goes too deep into our souls are personal and unique it is really inexplicable.

But pain like everything in this world is dual, it could be beautiful too, it is through pain how we grow, how we learn what life is about, only facing it we can move forward.

I was not sure how to do it, so I decide to go back to my roots, and there I got the answer I was looking for.

In Italian Renaissance something extremely cruel and violent was showed as one of the most beautiful and remarkable works of art in human history, in Cranach work the panel showing the suicide of Lucretia after she was violated by Sextus Tarquinius, or courage of ancient Romans in intensely passionate struggle in the pancratiastis fights or simply the pain of been over weight over emotional and over worried.
