This work was inspired by the painting Death and Life by Gustave Klimt. Life and death merge in this painting through the existential circle, and although we want to be ignorant in the face of death, we come back and remember that death is a constant waiting to collect. The history of the relationship between death and woman is following its course and today, thus, the conventional magnetism that attracts through the sickly refinement of the transposition of the ugly and the evil models an art that evolves into a brand that sells like hot bread: the ironic comedy of the movie Death by sex illustrates this globally publicized concept: the kiss of death is a trophy. The painting depicts a beautiful woman lying on a bed and beside her is death lying upside down holding a flute, the legendary musical instrument of Orpheus which tamed any beast. The painting is an analogy of how women were categorized from ancient times a goddess of life or death.
The series of paintings Anima outlines the nature of Animus feminine aspiration, which is the personification of the most desired woman: The unreachable feminine ideal.
