Ana Mendieta

ana-mendieta

I chose this piece because I really like the contrast between the dark, muted rocks and soil, the stark white of the human shaped outline, and the brightness of the flames. To me, this work seems to resemble a post apocalyptic world where the last of mankind is in flames. I also think this could represent how people have destroyed the earth and in doing so have destroyed themselves. We have scorched the earth with industry and destruction.
