Narran artistas su cuarentena, Periódico REFORMA, Domingo 26 de abril 2020, pág 12.


Each day is a repetition full of differences.

I do daily cleaning, cooking, trying to read and meditate using bowls, I try to be relaxed

and optimistic most of every day, although sometimes I can’t keep up.

I usually spend several hours a day working on a new proposal that I will present going through this madness.

I am obsessive but before the Covid-19 Pandemic I have reached an extreme around cleaning by disinfecting everything I touch and it is going to enter my house.

My activities have completely changed in everything.

In little more than a month of confinement I have not seen family, friends, my studio team and collaborators.

I’m working and thinking of new ideas, projects and upcoming series, not only 5 days a week but also on Saturdays and Sundays, I try to keep myself busy and reinvent myself as much as possible.

What is the most difficult part of the running of the bulls?

The most difficult part of the confinement is listening and watching the news, not knowing until when this quarantine will end, when there will be a vaccine or a cure, what will happen to Mexico and to the world after this Covid-19 Pandemic.

I never thought about living something similar, I never imagined that the world could stop so long and I worry about thinking how and how long it will take for the recovery in the world.

It is strong to see how nature is benefited in all this, the silence that exists, the number of birds that are heard all day, the cleanest skies with white clouds and blue skies, the nocturnal bioluminescence in the sea of ​​Acapulco, the transparency in the water in Venice, anyway.
