Artist's description:

In this portrait I wanted to convey the diversity of origins and genes we carry, knowing or unknowingly. Although in recent years and even more so, in these past few months, inmigration and diversity of origins have been a hot topic, it is a reality that we can not turn away from. We are all a mix of so many legacies

The inspiration came from an italian/english circus musician living in Uruguay, that happend to be my grandfather.. He was the son of an italian inmgrant and englishman railroad employee, who never knew he had a son after his short stay at a certain town by the railroad. This is a recurrent story in so many small towns along the tracks. I bet you know one!

The face is purposly floating in the center of the image, unrooted.

In this artwork I used combination a watercolor like approach to apply the dyes and wax resist. I let the dyes spead a bit and mix a bit, then reserve, leaving the final expression to the crakling stage.
