One of the most delicated and sublime pieces published. The image is captured in a space that escapes us from the sense and melts beauty with its own pigment, its tones blend with the atmosphere itself and give us the minimalist keys that make up a work of art of fantastic beauty.

Painting has always seemed torn between an inward and an outward gaze: between vision and perception, between our dreams and the concrete, highly politicized conditions framing our comprehension of the world and what it might become. Today is no different. After a period in which the medium has been dominated by process-based abstraction, the figure – and representation with it – is ascendant again. But, if the 1990s and 2000s saw artists such as John Currin distorting classical form while others, following Gerhard Richter, mimicked photography, today’s figuration displays a distinctly different character. Gone, for the most part, are the echoes of old masters; gone, too, are the blurs of photorealism. What takes their place, instead, is a highly idiosyncratic approach filtered through pronounced affect, comic-book and sci-fi aesthetics, dreamy narratives and an eagerness to engage with our political moment without forfeiting the sensuousness of the medium.

David Geers (Sotheby's)

"The next time Estrella and Luz met, the night had fallen. They had settled with that once-errant community. During that day, Luz could not get rid of a strange feeling that sent her back to moments very hidden in her memory. Moments of peace as he did not remember others in all his existence. Moments perhaps only comparable to those moments in which she slept in the arms of her master as a child".
