This painting is part of my study of projection as a defense mechanism. The subject attributes to others their virtues or defects, including their shortcomings. This phenomenon operates in situations of emotional conflict, internal or external threat of origin, attributing to other people or objects feelings, thoughts and desires that they never quite accepted in themselves because they generate distress or anxiety.
As a result, the person can lose his real soul by trying to draw a new identity while looking at others distorting or redrawing their true identity in order to blend with mainstream society.
This painting is an inner portrait of our real hidden feelings, thoughts or desires; represented by our inner color and universe formed by everything that surround us, everything is part of us and we are part of everything, it influences us and makes us who we are.
