Description

The painting "Transition" is an exploration of the purpose of hope as a guide in the midst of uncertainty and fear. The piece depicts the streets of Caracas (Venezuela) with mostly greenish tones and dark values to recreate a sense of fear and toxicity. On the background, we see a gigantic figure walking between the buildings, surveilling the streets with its obscured eyesight. However, despite the darkness that engulfs the scenery, there is a small, childlike figure standing in the foreground. A blueish light emanates from its body, giving the character a saint-like presence while also illuminating its surroundings. Just like the painting, Venezuelans find their guiding light by relying on a very resilient outlook in life to guide themselves through their country’s economic and social crisis.
