Sombra: A Meditative Canvas of Life and Tradition

Within the canvas of “Sombra,” a vivid veil unfolds, the essence of a serene Sunday afternoon basking in dappled shade in a stadium. This masterpiece represents a paradox, a fusion of subjectivity and objectivity. Foremost, the bullfighter defies his fate before a background of public view.

However, the figure to the left exudes an air of calm security and confidence that no harm will befall him. Far-reaching here, we delve into the winding web of cultures and their traditions. A devoid of judgment, beauty, and charm. They are challenging us to contemplate killing animals for practice.

Moreover, this paradox deepens as we witness the bull’s demise and the male fighter’s approaching fate. A dance with death cloaked in honor. This ritual refers to ancient times when survival often hinged on such daring feats. Further, our dietary choices have evolved today, offering alternatives like herb diets that provide the same daily bread as meat. Notably, much of the USA deems bullfighting brutal, with only one enclave allowed in California for its Portuguese community.

Otherwise, from a technical perspective, the symbols embedded within the painting are provocative. It is beckoning a spiritual awakening to the complexities of life and death. A labor of love spanning five years, this masterpiece skillfully marries the precision of patterns with the raw, natural forms of its subjects.

Indeed, the symbols within the painting serve as bridges, breaking down mental obstacles and paving the way for new creative vistas. In this process, the mind sheds biases, presenting Sombra in its purest form. Even if just for a fleeting moment, surviving appears beautifully simple. Expressing gratitude for our daily sustenance becomes imperative, acknowledging the divine purpose it serves in our lives.

Therefore, “Sombra” transcends mere artistry; it’s a reflection, a contemplative journey into the depths of tradition, morality, and the simplicity of existence. Its vivid strokes and intricate symbols invite us to embrace life’s complexities with open hearts and minds.

The idea was born from a trip to Canada in Montreal. At the train station, to visit the dome, there were walls full of mosaic art. Full of orange, yellow, and green tones casting an afternoon light on the floor. Not from the fluorescent light but the street sidewalk iron bars, which were enchanting. Moreover, the USA flag model came from Jasper Johns, an American painter, sculptor, and printmaking artist. So transforming images from sources is recharging along with a past

Furthermore, for this reason, Borders is a political statement with many points to consider for its content. Then, in the technical aspect, it urges to alter the color. In either case, the stripes of white and blue changed. In general, the whole image where the flag with patterns rest. Green depicts fertile ground; also, the entire forest means abundance. Underneath the banner in the gold background full of Maya and Aztec symbols rest in ancient history.
In addition, crows are flying into the light, symbolizing the people.
For this reason, unable to cross the wall, some may die of starvation or drowning to find freedom. Thus, not leaving behind the smuggling of drugs in the middle of the need of the people and the lord drugs creates more problems. Further, then everybody pays for it, and deportation is inevitable.
Moreover, now clear what the message is. Borders’ depiction represents the wall between the USA, Latin America, and other settlers. Consequently, it generates more income for impresarios in the labor areas. For others, a thread. In conclusion, the government has never ceased to steal, for their selfishness does not let them see the future of their citizens. In short, some people may meet to face their demise on the road to freedom.
