Rodrigo Calixto

My seven seasons

2017

Diagnosed with leukemia on January of 2015, the artist was hospitalized for 21 months.

From this period, named by “Red Period”, emerged the Simbiose set of 29 unique prints with 22K gold leaf.

“My seven seasons” is the name of the artwork that originated the Simbiose series. It was at this time that the artist used the bags of blood received to draw the images lately printed.

This artwork brings together 20 bags of blood in their original condition, after being manipulated and the creation of the drawings made during the hospital time.

The title symbolizes the seasons of the year which the artist spent inside of the hospital.
