Mizraim Cárdenas • Ulises a la deriva (Ulises adrift), 2018 Grabado en linóleo
This print represents a stream of water dragging everything on its path. A lost road where a truck is gradually submerging and adrift, as in the mythology, among the routes taken by the defiant Ulysses to get lost in the sea in a fatal destine. The incessant movement of the water is an environmentalist message that not even a 4×4 truck can challenge the fury of nature.
