... He like the tones explained. Red color, similar to blood, like eternity and life, in its different spectral range and, in the light in which he is master, prevails deliberately in the most important paintines not to distract from the whole context. Authentic works of art speak for themselves and enrich the observer by pervading it internally, are words of love.
Faces, women's naked and landscapes, are all artistically concretized works. And “Acacia leaves” speak for themselves, face the mystery of the unknown through one an important symbol of the Initiative Tradition. Testimonial, once again, the evolved intelligence of this artist who has made equal the excitement of the older men.
