‘Un Regalo de Picasso Después de Una Noche de Beber Absenta’
30 x 30 cm.
‘Un Regalo de Picasso Después de Una Noche de Beber Absenta’. The title in English would be ‘A gift from Picasso after a night of drinking Absinthe’. This painting, painted in March 2020 is from my ‘Mandorla’ series. The Mandorla, or Vesica Piscis, is an ancient symbol of two circles coming together and overlapping one another to form an almond shape in the middle. During medieval times, the almond was interpreted as a symbol of the embryo enclosed in the uterus. More recently it has become a symbol of balancing of energies and that creation is the result of consciousness.
