Oil on canvas

This complex compositional mix presents two almost displaced figures surrounded by a jungle scene. Yet, somehow, this strange composition offers harmony through working with the theme of connecting oneself with their cultural origins. Tejada controls our experience of the artwork by strategically placing light accents on the main focal points, such as the face on the right, the hand above it, and the flowers. Moreover, the shells covering the breasts of the female on the left are also brought from the darkness while she remains in the shadows. All of this works in Tejada´s favour to explore elements and beings with masculine and feminine identity within the same self through humans and flowers.
