Pedro Pacheco About

My painting is born of anger, anguish, solitude, and in the search for ways to produce the loss of integrity, of globalization, the lack of security, complexity and the mutation of the values in the world today, so confusing, fragmented, and indecipherable. I explore in the neo-baroque sense of our time. It is my tool for survival, reflecting perhaps, the passage of time when life hurts to walk the years. It's like trying to paint a poem on each painting, about the things that happen. But..... in spite of everything, always encourages me in the hope of finding the light in each step. The only thing that is important to me is to continue working, my way___..because my distance starts where I arrive. Everything else is pure vanity. Add Comment
