They may be monocolours either painted or worked, but they are not abstract paintings: they rise from a tradition that justifies them and modernism is far away from those paintings. They are icons of an unknown God, their dimensions are never changing being the issue not in the different sizes but in the prayer, in the act of filling the surface with a monochord voice, with the silence available in the room and the time it takes to. The absence of figures does not necessarily mean that man itself is missing as target. They encompass a lot of humanism although no carnal figures are represented.
Inside the exhibition space the coloured paintings show themselves with the chorality of a chant, one after the other with different colours, but they seem to be formalized out of town, on the mountain, nearby the running water, where silence kills every superficial thought, decoration is excluded, enjoyment is trapped outside the door and where it exposes itself with faith: those 4 colours for 4 unique paintings; not repeatable as ideologically belonging to uniqueness.
