Anonymus

This collection is a reflection on the ephemeral nature of identity. Each artwork, titled with names reflecting the most popular ones in Catalonia, invites to question singularity within the multitude.

Germanes del mar
Acrylic on canvas. 2024
17.94 x 14.82 in / 46×38 cm

2024 January was the “No al afred” swim journey, and I thought it would be like other years: go, swim, laugh with my buddies, have breakfast, and go back home. But it wasn’t like that.

In the middle of the race, I started feeling dizzy. I stopped for a moment to see if it would pass, my teammates kept moving forward, I tried to resume but still felt dizzy. I decided to turn around and head back to the shore. It got worse. 🤢 Dizziness turned into nausea, and I started getting a little scared. I clung to my buoy and looked around: no one. I raised my hand, and as if by magic, Irene appeared. She surrounded me with her arms and conveyed calm until the civil protection boat arrived and took me to the shore.

“Your companion is so kind!” I told the boat driver. “She’s not my companion; she’s a participant like you,” he said, and I was amazed.

And this story inspired me to paint “Germanes del mar” (Sisters of the Sea in Catalan).

Irene and @elspeixetsdelgolfet swim the @oncoswim to raise funds for triple-negative breast cancer research. A very aggressive subtype that mainly affects young women.

🙏 Forever grateful to have met them, I donated this painting to help raise more money. It’s important to note that 100% of the proceeds go entirely to the research group.
