1948 - 2019
FAVELA painted with so much joy, poetry and beauty, it gives one a sense of complete amazement, along with his very subtle sense of humor.
Women dancing in immense ballrooms; sailors in an improbable musical; musicians who carouse rather than suffer the adversities of their trade; Young men of innocent beauty; Young women of natural lasciviousness; beloved objects; furniture, plants, trees, the embracing landscape and the ever present fauna. Always the dogs; noble and sleepy in control of the situation, of any situation. Dogs who are eye-witnesses, companions, complements to human life, pharaohs in their realm of overstuffed beds and imperial thrones. Dogs who come and go; dogs who stay or leave, but never cease to be the measure of our passage through the world.
