"Alien Love"
60x80cm Acrylic on canvas 2015

Alien Love is a piece that I made using inspiration from H.R Giger (the Swiss artist that's famous for his design of the alien creature for Ridley Scott's movie "Alien" and all the universe and style attached. His works have always been a source of inspiration since I was a kid and I used this symbol of a xenomorphic creature to convey my message of acceptance of difference. The alien creature is to be perceived as a very aggressive and dangerous being, however, I painted it in a very "submissive" position to take away some of the fear it creates and the offering of the flower stands for a reach of this difference towards others. I like to use contrast and opposition concepts in my work and achieving this, in order to pass the message, is the objective of this piece.
