tauromaquia

2009 / 2010

A tribute to Picasso's drawings of bullfighting, inspired by Paleolithic cave paintings of Lascaux, in southwestern France. In those primitive images, force and spirituality of the bull were represented with power. In the french southern region of Camargue, native black bulls with upward sweeping horns run free in the suggestive marshland in the delta of the river Rhone.
