Meet the Artist
World is close to an album of intimate individuals involved in certain situations. His constructions of associate images that emerge around the personae in his works are not backgrounds, but a geography of their concern nd struggle for life. The two paintings in this show "It Does Not Matter" and " No Argument on This Matter," Represent two women-urban and rural-in their own situation-one in the street and other in the field. Both are attached to the body of their lands but also separated from it.
