This work is inspired by the political situation of Venezuela where the state uses its security forces to control and suppress any sense of freedom. The soldiers in the painting don't let the viewer enjoy the beautiful and peaceful landscape. I used this as a metaphor of my own situation where I'm not able to return to my home country because of the political situation which is sustained by the security forces.
