“Expansion” blends sacred geometry with Mexican cultural symbols. The space is divided into various universes, each of which plays with both rational and irrational geometric images to create a sense of harmony, expansion, and/or depth. The black background, which was the last step of this drawing and done with acrylic paint, provides a visual sense of emptiness, depth and intensity that I like. The pregnant women in the drawing represent the cycle of life; if you look closely, their bodies together also form the shape of a skull. Similarly, the leaves on the tree of life at the bottom of the drawing are skulls, forming another cycle. The dragon can represent the space in our minds where both reality and fantasy exist.
