The last voyage of Charon. 2015.

40 x 60 cm.

Pencil, ballpoint pen and pastel on paper.

 

 

After millenia of taking condemned souls to hell, Charon makes his ultimate journey to the Kingdom of Shadows. He knew he would share his final crossing with the destiny of two last passengers. The journey from which there would be no return.

 

No longer the fierce and fearful demon who beats spirits to dislodge them from his boat. Bent and aging in every way, slowly rowing, with serenity, to the final point of his last crossing.

 

He would forever remember the pale moon reflected in the calm and frigid waters, and the fog caressing his face as he rowed.

 

Now, his boat evermore would stay cast upon the shore, and the jaws of the cavern of hellwould soon be closed forever. And the sun would set for the last time behind the misty horizon of Styx lagoon.

The abysse. 2016.

60 x 40 cm.

Pencil, ballpoint pen and pastel on paper.

     

 

            Next to the ruins of Lupshara

            A dark abyss is opened

            Devouring man and beast

 

            Silently growing

            Feeding insatiably

            From the mountain of the occult

 

            Slowly;

            Drought to drought;

            storm to storm

 

            In its cavernous gut

            At once inviting and hostile

            It has given shelter to the bear

            And sepal to the hunter

 

            Delicately at its breast

            Molded mischievous to the mother rock

            It plays with impossible forms

 

            Patiently

            Drop by drop;

            Flood by flood

 

            It has seen the frosts come and go

            turning green meadow

            Into thick and shaded wood

 

            And one day at the hour of final collapse

            It will emerge into the profanity of light

 

            To die under the sun, forgotten by men

Subterranean Apocalypse. 1998.

68 x 41 cm.

Pencil, marker and pastel on paper.

 

 

 

For years I practiced caving, and I have seen the wonders of the fragile subterranean world. This drawing alludes to those that enter this world without the respect it deserves, looting, trashing destroying whatever they find on their path. In the lower part, in Ruin letters, is included an extraordinary phrase that summarizes unlike any other what should be the behaviour of anyone who visits a cave. It was used as a motto by the NSS (National Speleological Society of America) of the United States, the organization dedicated to the exploration, study, and conservation of caves.

 

“Take nothing but pictures,

leave nothing but footprints, 

kill nothing but time.”
