La Renonciation
Detail of the triptych

Reinterpretation of one of the most famous episodes in biblical history: the Annunciation. The pivot between the Law and Grace is here transfigured into the Renunciation evoking a hypothetic “no”. The three drawings and collag- es are enshrined in a yew triptych, in the style of a retable. Closed, it becomes a minimalist mural sculpture.
