THE ART OF NAGUALERO
Of Time—Space Infinite, Limitless
In Nagualero, space has no time and time with no space sprawls yawning to the crackling of the body in imagination, eccentricities and genius of irreverent themes surrealistically controversial. Of looks and bodies mordantly poetical, messengers of silhouettes sheltered in the walk of scenarios, sat at the table of Full Moon nights and Fiery Sunsets of dust and colour, odours and magic...
From self-extroversion to eremitical intimacy, in moments of creative retreat, the work of art emerges unbound in thoughts, journeys of sentiment. Body and soul in metamorphosis or recreation of inner eruption of affections, philosophies ... Solitary walk of desires and relinquishments... Themes and matters out of the reach of arms or embraces of looks! When the aesthetic-plastic technique plunges into the poetical complicity of each work of art, the sublimation of the moment opens in message or invitation...
Journey into the interiority of one’s dream, renovated and announced at each second of one’s Liberty and Passion!
