Series of mixed media drawings and paintings. "LAS CICATRICES VIEJAS" or "THE OLD SCARS"
The Old Scars is a conceptual series. The defining aspect of the whole series is the scar or wound that all of the people have on their shoulders. This scar is not an actual physical woundat all, but more of a representational symbol, symbolizing each persons past experiences, memories, emotions, and in essence their soul. The scar is also not representational of only traumatic memories, but more of all things that make them who they are and define their existence. All the figures in the series have a common anonymity, as their eyes are hidden, missing, or dark. Our eyes are the story of our lives, and without them shown, we are defined by our scars, the only thing wresting us free of perpetual anonymity.
