In this artwork I wanted to represent the fugacity of life, what we are and what we will become when we die. The inevitability of our destiny. I wanted to take a picture of a statue and added a photo of a skull. To accentuate the drama and the cynical coldness of fate, I have used a filter that makes the portrait almost grainy. There are areas where, if you pay attention, it’s possible to see small green grains, almost pixilated. The idea was to convey the transient life.
