Artwork Statement

The appropriation of a well-established phrase of universal culture, turned into a title for this graphic work, raises a question about the longevity and permanence of the encounter and relationship between opposites. Color is assumed as a symbolic fact, posed on equal terms the everlasting struggle between red and blue, also understood as an ideological event. In the background a dark, deep, timeless plot, like a tamed silent city.
