Samuel Sarmiento, El sol, la luna y la oscuridad, 2019, mixed media on paper, 31x23cm.
Sarmiento's inspiration for El sol, la luna y la oscuridad or The Sun, The Moon, and The Darkness is an African story of the creation of the earth.
In this work, the artist uses color and the fluidity of the aquarelle technique to tell this story in one cohesive scene. The composition not only blurs space but also time, blending day time, with night time and then total darkness.
