World of Bones series by Lurac


The series, World of Bones, is made of paintings, drawings, prints, and mixed media on paper, canvas, and board. World of Bones is a world inhabited by skeletal figures, and other fantastic creatures. Inspired by dreams, Mexican culture, and everyday life. Other influences to this series are ancient Mesoamerican cultures, street art, and globalization. Some times, the current artworks show a close resemblance to the real world.
The anthropomorphic figures are a metaphor of humankind, and the other creatures represent our dreams and fears. I chose to use fleshless creatures as a way of saying that it does not matter if your skin color is one or another, all of us are the same inside. Also, the use of saturated bright colors is an allegory of life and beauty.
The skeletal figures are immerse in a continuous struggle to survive. It is an ongoing battle between life and death, in a world where hegemonic powers alienate those who choose to be different. The other beings, the always expendable ones that choose not to be on the train of false progress that takes us to nowhere.
This series is about dreams and imagination, yet it is a social commentary on the current state of the Earth.
