by Jairo Guerrero
An intriguing artwork in one, bright, white color, presenting, at the first glance, an angel. However, it is not an angel in the traditional convention, because under its robe you can see not the body, but the skeleton – ribs, pelvis, bones. And although the head and collarbones look like humans’, it can be seen that the figure is actually a creature resembling an angel of death. It has a calm expression on its face and eyes closed. There is a halo of thorns above its head, evoking the symbol of suffering. It is surrounded by creatures that are associated with flies or dragonflies, but with skulls instead of heads. The ambience of the painting is unusual, very uplifting and disturbing at the same time. It evokes iconic representations of saints, which is why the painting has a sacred, though perverse, character.
