In this painting by Floria Gonzalez, we revisit the recurring motif of a burning house that has been a central theme in her work since her transition from photography to painting. What sets this particular work apart is the striking intensity of the colors and the captivating contrast between the blazing house and the vivid blues that envelop it. 

While blue is often associated with calm and peace in artworks, in this painting, the sky seems undisturbed by the flames. It exudes a dreamlike quality, bordering on the surreal. It's as if these two scenes are unfolding in separate dimensions, akin to a memory frozen in time.

Floria González's artistry captures moments poised on the precipice of impact, crystallizing the instant just before a meteorite collides with Earth. In her snapshots, time seems to halt, and viewers find themselves momentarily breathless, captivated by the profound beauty of the impending cataclysm. Her compositions carry a sense of suspended knowledge—an understanding that something momentous is on the brink of occurrence, accompanied by the anticipatory dissolution in a resounding noise.

In her painted characters, a unique tension emerges. They inhabit their spaces with an unencumbered freedom, seemingly unaware of the impending event. Their backs turned to the observer, they remain blissfully unaware, while we, as viewers, possess an awareness of what lies ahead. The images she creates exist beyond conventional notions of time, suffused with a casual technicolor aesthetic that both amplifies and distorts the hyperreality of the fantastical scenes she portrays.
