A bit of Cy´s Lepanto

07Lepanto_VI

At the end of this incredible year 2017 I felt the need to walk guided by my Artfather Cy into 2018 with “A bit of Cy´s Lepanto“.

The Lepanto paintings are still a high influence to my work since I´ve seen them in Madrid at Museo del Prado. Cy Twombly had a feel for the protagonists at the Battle of Lepanto. When the paintings were made in early 2001, Cy Twombly´s Lepanto paintings revived a legend. Since September 11, 2001 these works have taken on an unexptected resoncance that adds edges to our recollection of the famous battle and prods reflection on the way all our histories – of wars, of art, of cultures – are made to work.

In a few hours we start 2018 and our future’s so bright, we gotta wear shades!
