Artist's Interpretation:

In the realm of possibilities nothing is more frightening than the absence of perception since it fails to make us conscious of the unconscious and leaves us in a state of absolute ignorance. In the sky of our imagination floats the Eye, the metaphysical womb where the pupil becomes a child seeking the metamorphosis of light and enlightenment in the desolate desert courted by ancestral waves of memories. Immersed in a sea of blue (thinking), hues of red (purification) and orange (ambition) enhance the spatiality of our feelings awakening from the deepest meanders of our subconscious. It is through the inner eye that we survey the ruins of yesterday in search of the dreams of tomorrow.
