DIANA BENEDETTI

REALITY BITES/CRUDA REALIDAD

“Reality Bites” is filled with love, and even a touch of mystery. I use symbols that express reality and fantasy, which come together to tell the story of human nature, of our perfection and of course, our imperfection. I contemplate social and cultural issues to show them in a new light, with a bit of sarcasm, humor, and even criticism to spark a flame in the soul and open hearts and minds.

“Cruda Realidad” está lleno de amor y hasta un toque de misterio. Uso símbolos que expresan una realidad y una fantasía, que unidas cuentan la historia de la naturaleza humana, de su perfección e imperfección. Contemplo temas sociales y culturales mostrándolos bajo una nueva luz, con un poco de sarcasmo, humor y hasta crítica para despertar una pequeña llama en el alma y abrir corazones y mentes.
