Landscapes
Some subjects are so vast and unattainable, that when humans, with all his knowledge and insight, confront them, there remains nothing to be done but to bow in awe and wonder. Nature is something in which every detail is divided into smaller parts, and each of them can be as important as the turning of the wheel of existence itself. Sometimes man, despite all his knowledge, simply passes by such vastness, and in addition to his passing, he lives along the lines of its nonexistence. Anyhow, man is constantly throwing something off balance, which has been stable for quite a long time—even before dinosaurs. If only we could enjoy such immensity without having to manipulate it! Many of us have heard the South American saying, “We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children.”
On these works, I need to say that they are a representation of the glory and grandeur in which I have been present throughout the process of making these series. My physical presence in nature helped me induce the sense of man’s strangeness in nature, in an environment which is pure an unadulterated, by formal placement of colors. My goal was to bring about such complex equilibrium with utmost simplicity, which was only a minute part of such a great organic order, and which we have been destroying throughout the years, willingly or unwillingly. Needless to say, the colors are chosen according to my own taste, but choosing colors were something that nature, with her mountains and meadows, had engraved on my sub-conscious forever, lest I forget that the green of the tress, the blue of the ocean, and the yellow of the leaves, will always remain unattainable—may we not hasten the coming of her total destruction.
