The downfall of mankind has all too often become our humanistic approach in which we view the world. Deftly divided from our surroundings, we pick at the very roots that bind us. We are special. We are different. We are meaningful. Duenas exposes a combined reality, blurring the rose colored lines between the natural world and our alienated human emotion. Grief, turmoil, and desire are visible through the creeping sunlight and blossoming trees. No longer removed, the existence of life can once again be celebrated. We are not alone.
