about this work
This large “painting” is characterised by a strong and austere colour palette. The composition is made up of a grid of intersecting vertical and horizontal lines. Symbols of religion and political power stand out against a background that fades from shades of black to gray. With this work the artist has arranged, with a disarming clarity, the traditional elements that epitomise the cultural and philosophical richness of his language.
