What the artist says about the series.
Evanescences deals with those things that fade with the passage of time: things like the loss of faith in oneself, the loss of love and the loss of the meaning of life. Sometimes the passage of time wears us out and we do not recognize our outlook on life.People fade away. Gradually through the streets, and life, day to day. People, as an independent and personal entity, as a particular and non-transferable personality, as a single and honest soul, are evaporating in favor of robotization.
Yes, the excess of information on the part of the technologies, often false and yellow, the avalanche of consumerism that we suffer from the perpetual publicity at street level and in our own privacy through the Internet, the will of the big companies, of the governmental interests and of the powerful families in becoming cattle and killing the particularity as individuals of each person to control them and tell us what we have to say, what we have to buy and what we have to vote.
All this makes us gradually become too light in the significance of life and our role is increasingly ignorable in a world that seems to be directed to the annihilation of the original people. A world dedicated to appearance: to the external image and to what it seems we have inside. I have conceived this series as a whole, all the works speak of this and speaking specifically of each work does not make sense.
This is what Saul says about himself.
Hi. My name is Saúl Gil Corona and I can't live without painting. Since birds can't fly without wings, like dolphins can't swim without fins, I can't live without painting.
For me, painting is not something I do to find an inner peace or to relax. To paint is war with myself. Painting turns me on and gives me headaches when I can't find that work I'm looking for. I think about art constantly, many times I can't sleep. Although I find myself exhausted my head does not stop spinning.
For better or worse, I am chaining this dream. I have had times when I combined art with hard work in factories. I slept little. The money I earned was spent on buying material to paint. I bet on this when I had almost nothing to bet. I have even thought about abandoning ... but I have never been able to, because when I spend a short time without painting I feel drowned and died in life.
I'm autodidactic. With my painting I try to explain what happens to me inside. I really think I explain myself better by painting than by speaking. I like works that remind me that we are human, that we have feelings and that we still differ from robots (I say even because I see that in the not too distant future we will become machines, if we are not). I love imperfections, things that excite, I love what emanates from the heart. This is my goal when I paint.
Although lately I also try other forms of creativity more philosophical and intellectual. This coming and going from one place to another, in the world of the creative.
I like works with meaning, those that want to change something in some sense, even if it is something small and something of little scope.
As a last thing to say that I admire the classics, both the classic painters and the poets, as all the people who, in one sense or another made the world a little better. I believe that to all who lived before us we owe everything we know and everything we can do. They made us start from a more advanced point where they started. They built things for us and we must respect that. But we also have the obligation to take this cultural heritage beyond for subsequent generations and of course always taking care of this place called land that we must love and make it last millions of years.
