José Luis Cuevas García
New Era


In this series, José Luis Cuevas García suggests a spiritual quest that leads people along obscure paths. Its ambiguous character evokes the general malaise of a society – one which rejects spirituality while fanatically trusting supernatural forces in hope of manipulating their own reality. Through the eternal struggle between good and evil, the finite and the infinite, life and death, there appear to be glimmers of hope from prophecies that promise a way of escape, but they are nothing more than a metaphor for a world in which loathing, fear and despair are triumphant.
