Exhibition Opening: 6 December 2007
The sketches and the water colors are the product of a difficult era. They convey the internal battles of the artist while he was living and working in the context of a climate of dictatorship when freedom was fully suppressed. They are keep sake journals and do not represent an accurate reproduction of facts, but rather a reflection which seeks to artistically represent the events and the feelings that linger in the artist’s memory.
