LUIS SERRANO (1953)
Sandra Pinto, an Art Historian and former Superintendent of The National Gallery of Modern Art in Rome wrote “his works bring about the images of Sicily; late summer in Agrigento’s countryside where the light varies according to various circumstances and makes various objects stand out, such as an olive, a fig, an almond tree or a monument. Besides the trees, the same techniques and the same light are applied on the gallery’s wall where we find pastel painting images of the ruined millenial relics, the“arcosolia”. Their timeless hellenistic characteristics relate them to the trees, and just like them, they seem not to arrive from history, but to stem from the Earth crust since the dawn of time”.
A powerful and majestic opera by an important master of figurative painting!
