CHILDHOOD

Jorge Pineda (b. Dominican Republic 1961)

Artist Statement:

Childhood is the time when we start to build up our personality, and it is supposed to be the happiest time of our lives, but social violence makes it difficult to adjust. In order to be strong, children make masks where they can hide fear, so they can play with the negative idea they have of themselves. These masks shield the feelings reflected in society as I show in MambrĂș, with its child soldiers who have been taken away and used as instruments of destruction.
