The truth seems a story:
They are, in this series, versioned some of the intentions of the stage that precedes it. That is, that whoever desire to provoke in the viewer a number of sensations and temptations through the image of children is maintained.
One more time, we insist that these characters and the artist couple are joined remove public awareness and pursue an analysis that is specific, the essence of his work.
Are irony, satire, mockery, jokes and metaphor resources explored by the creator to promote meditation in a society devoid of feelings and some precautions.
Maykel Herrera is based on the color, lighting with impressionist overtones, also aging and treatment of textures, to strengthen their intentions. It has achieved a higher level in its creation and has reached a very consistent power synthesis with their times. Once the dialogue is proposed and we know we are achieving with caution.
