As in "Bishop", in this painting there is another way of appropriating a recognizable element, in this case a typical London bus, and taking it practically to another dimension. Taking means of transport, objects or animals and visually taking them to something else is going to be recurrent when it comes to understanding my painting, in this case the bus functions as a device for reflection on the political contingency of the United Kingdom and its departure from the European Community. Another recurring aspect in my painting is to "valporize" the elements that I take possession of, that is, to load them with a certain identity of my city of origin, which is Valparaíso. In this city the poor houses are typical and with covers and coatings of calamine (corrugated tin) with which I project to seize and merge with the main object. The bus agglutinates and Valparaíso agglomerates one could say. The others are symbols of free interpretation, among them there is on the right a cryptic interpretation of Don Quixote de la Mancha as an allegory to another empire that also declined.
The original painting is in a private collection in the San Francisco Bay AreaRead more about Lobsang
