Lona vinílica calada y pintada. 500 x 400 cm
The artist says: A gigantic dragonfly, floating in the air, in the space connecting the first and second floor at Proa. On this hole full of natural light, one can see the migration of a gigantic animal going to the river: the dragonfly flies and projects itself. A dialogue between the minimal and the baroque, the jungle and the city. A work produced in vinyl fretwork canvas, obtained of the residue of gigantographies.
The dictionary says about dragonflies: “Its natural habitat is the proximity of lakes, ponds, rivers and swans, given that its nymphs are aquatic. The dragonflies do not sting human beings, and are valuable as predators controlling populations of insects as mosquitos and flies”.
