Alejandro on a swiftly tilting planet
Piece description from the artist
"Alejandro on a swiftly tilting planet" is painting number one in my rural American youth series studying the effects shifting and evolving cultural norms on young adults. In this artwork, I am narrating the angst and isolation these young women experience and the monumental monotony they face as avenues of expression remain unfulfilled, either by location or by financial circumstance. As a consequence they channel their energies and their emerging personalities into mundane activities in an attempt to find their place in society and the world, an activity common to all children regardless of culture, race or location.
