La Vida – Choose is a bronze bust, with 4 different hands.
Many layers of significance are contain in this piece.
The hair compose the words LA VIDA, that in Spanish mean LIFE. Also she has the word choose on the right part of the head. The artist plays with the words, inviting to choose, not to choose life, but to choose whatever you think is good for you, because life is a choice.
Also, the piece is a beautiful interactive game when yu can CHOOSE what to do with it, moving the 4 hands around (literally they can turn) and also pick the hand you prefer in any given moment to communicate.
The contrast between the golden polish and the dark black and gray patinas speaks about contrasts, that somehow give LIFE meaning and worth.
The aesthetics could remind steampunk, where elegance and decadence of pasta and future meet
Any piece is handmade so the patina could be a little different from the picture
