The Adam and Eve series marked that stage in the middle 1980s of a
succession of paintings
and drawings depicting the origin of humanity, the
beginning of the beginnings. In this large format
painting one can see a
certain influence of the Egyptian profiles, those profiles that eternalised
memory and captured men and women in their most pure and serene state,
on a journey
that moved from the worldly to the supernatural, a way of
perpetuating life beyond death.
The acrylic technique of pigments and a
blue colour spectrum that recalls lapis lazuli,
so characteristic of the noble
stone used by the Egyptians to sculpt their jewellery and treasures,
with pulped paper and latex, to create reliefs and half reliefs. A painting with a certain
roughness to the touch but, emotionally and symbolically, like velvet.
