This painting depicts a woman in a post-apocalyptic environment. The composition’s aggressively raw style exploits the disparity between the colorful innocence of the figuration and the lurking subtext. Like many of Fullana’s works, the woman in this painting serves as an alter-ego for the artist. Fullana’s compositions allow her to give free rein to an assortment of liberated girls, hooligans, hedonist epicureans and militant cyborgs.
