by Jairo Guerrero
The artwork depicting the ruins of a once noble, enormous building – perhaps a basilica or a palace? The walls are green, gnawed by the tooth of time. Birds have taken care of its interior. The author recorded their dynamic poses during flight, which can be seen in the foreground. The building is dark, we are inside. The only source of light is the arch that used to be the entrance and the remains of the mighty stained glass window. Two tiny figures dressed in red cloth attract attention – monks, travelers, pilgrims?
This artwork is another fantastic vision of the future. Perhaps even today? It is something that connects the present with what may happen, or is already happening in front of our eyes. After all, abandoned, overgrown buildings are not something uncommon…
