This painting was exhibited in 2013 in the military base of Severomorsk in Russia, within the framework of the X-Border Art Biennial which was a partnership between the cities Lulea of Sweden, Rovaniemi of Finland and Severomorsk of Russia.

The subject of the Biennial was: "Borders in Art; social, philosophical, theological".


I chose a monochromatic palette based on tonality in order to express the fragile relationships that are developed when the environment becomes constricting for the children themselves. In order to reach to some aesthetic result and to conclude the color Gray, I saw the studies of the Mondrian, Giacometti and Jasper Jones on that color; although exceptional works with gray compositions exist in Western Art from the Middle Ages. The red in my work complements or composes the hope for uplifting and sometimes the risk posed by the apathy and indifference towards children and the difficulties encountered.
