Resilience, 2018

Oil on canvas
70 x 70 cm.

Resilience is knowing what joins you to the earth and where you came from.

Resilience is knowing how to change to adapt to circumstances.

Resilience is also reborn from your ashes and when you no longer know who you are -and see yourself alone and without reasons to fight- connect with your willpower to create a new you from nothing.

Hummingbirds are used in this work to reinforce the meaning described above since it is a sacred bird in almost all American Indian cultures because of its enormous capacity for adaptation and great intelligence. It is related to reincarnation and is considered "messenger of the gods." In Mayan culture, if a hummingbird flies around your head it can only indicate good omens.
