A series of allegorical works – paintings, sculptures or the two combined – that narrate the journey of the human explorer, from his first creative steps to his later space strides, always beneath the imposing gaze of nature, which, as difficult as it is for her to reveal her vitalizing treasures, just as easily and relentlessly she can close the access to those who disrespect her laws. Cosmic Aether is the fifth element, according to Aristotle and the ancient sages, the material that unites the four elements of nature – earth, water, fire and air – and the source of energy that governs the entire universe. The artist invites us to discover the enigmatic influence the aether has on the human explorer through works that combine the everyday, the mythological and the cosmogenic.
