This painting describes the teenager brought up in a digital world. I have exaggerated life going by, by using unusual animal like creatures surrounding her while she is totally oblivious to her surroundings. The goldfish is symbolic of wealth, prosperity, abundance and good luck, but she just needs to open her eyes to see it. Wearing a kimono and hat designed by fashion designer Mauricio Alpizar, does the hand holding the phone in front of her actually belong to her? Or is there something more sinister and symbolic going on here? Lots of subliminal messages and meanings in this painting but I’m not going to give them all away. Does an apple a day keep the doctor away?
