Pari Passu evolution - Novopangea



Technique: Oil + objects on electronic circuit boards and oil on canvas Dimensions: 60 x 57 cm Year: 2022

A painting belonging to the series of four works called “Evolution Pari passu” that addresses human technological evolution compared to the drift of terrestrial continents.

The first painting represents the beginning of the human journey over the planet through footprints left during the collecting phase; cave paintings that refer to the hunter phase; the observation of nature through the observation of the elliptical geometric shape and the primal conception of the existence of the sun and the moon as part of their habitat. The continents are united in a supercontinent known as Pangea.

The second painting represents the space occupation of the planet; the invention of writing; learning mathematics; the association of natural phenomena with superstitions and subsequent logical understanding of them; mastery of agricultural, architectural and material techniques; and the beginning of the domain of electronics. The continents are slowly moving apart.

The third painting represents the current moment in which humanity finds itself where the technological domain is correlated with the risk of environmental and atomic hecatombs. The continents are displayed in the current position.

The fourth frame represents a distant future in which the continents will be united again in a hypothetical supercontinent called Novopangea, and most of the records of our civilization will be erased, leaving few clues of human presence, represented by the silhouettes of feet and a hand.
