Longing is part of the serie ‘’The lightness of being’’. With this painting I express the yearnings that we all have and that prevent us from living the present fully.
We could say that nostalgia is the enemy of the present. That which clings melancholy to a past that will no longer return, while the moment of now passes sadly without hardly being perceived, much less valued.
We could say, then, that consecutive nostalgia repeated in time could endanger an entire life.
Protect yourself from nostalgia. Nothing that was before will be again, but nothing that is being will be if you don’t live it now.
