This Chagoya print, “Expresses Nothing but the Self” and “Invites Into the World of the Eternal Instant” are both concerned with the current unsustainable interaction between people and nature.
We are part of nature, not a species apart. We are creating an ongoing extinction of fauna and flora and we are headed toward massive extinction if we don’t take urgent action. I try to use some humor in my work as a form of a personal defense against my own anxieties in this context. Humor is a door opener into uncomfortable topics that we need to deal with. Enrique Chagoya
