Strong colours, exuberant vegetation, vigorous life and a kind of visibility of death and transience that is unfamiliar to European eyes – all of this is conveyed by the breathtakingly intense images contained in the project LA CUCARACHA, created in Mexico in 2018 and 2019. The portraits and still lifes bring to the fore the travelling artist’s openness towards generic yet unexpected situations.
