Lorena Gutiérrez Camejo, From Balloon of Cantoya series
TAP TO ZOOM
2020 | Acrylic and gesso on canvas with black primer, 12 x 12 in
In this new series, the artist has sought to depersonalize the very frequent live broadcasts these days by various political actors on the current scene; and that they have also been viewed on social networks and other digital platforms. Lorena has reached the point of eliminating faces, political content and the responses or interactions of those subjects to whom that message is intended. She has intentionally relied on the use of chromaticism that might suggest the colors of the political spectrum of any of the societies to which she alludes: insinuating the emptiness of the discourse, while supporting a flimsy social project; even the proper response, as a public opinion without any specific weight in the official history.
