Cañon del Sumidero (diptych) from the "Epistolary memories", by Javier Areán
This diptych is composed by the two sides of a same postcard, once sent by a friend or a parent to a beloved person. "This is where I am, and I think of you": this is the message a postcard usually holds. Nowadays, the postcard is the symbol of pure nostalgy. In an era of immediate communication, who sends a postcard yet?
Mexican artist Javier Areán cares about memory. In this series of diptychs, he re-interprets the picture with his pencils in watercolours.
