The paintings produced by this artist in relation to the RAR universe conjure up a paradoxically undefined point in their configuration. Using the same term that I applied to another series of his paintings, they are images devoid of time, where the link between reality and that which is effectively represented therein is diluted in compositions that intelligently shun anecdotal aspects, in order to find a strange kind of monumentality in the most simple and banal detail.
