Fire - luis albuquerque´s photograph

Fire (fogueira)

40x60

Cinders, ash and dust

lie on forgotten sands

allowing the echo of nature’s voice to roam

the mutism of this fire consumed by silence.

 

After photographing the charred remains of a fire, the artist digitally manipulated the resulting image to obtain this surreal and graphically suggestive work of art. Memories of ancestral rites and unpurged curses are the blue-violet ash lying on the ground in some forest lost in the memory of time. The cinder and ash contrast in the sunlight which penetrates the inner half-shadow of the forest. A light brown stain spreads across the sand on the ground, contrasting with the dark half-consumed charred branches.....

O cisco, a cinza e a poeira

jazem sobre as areias esquecidas

deixando o eco da  voz da natureza percorrer
o mutismo desta fogueira consumida pelo silêncio.
 

Depois de fotografar os os restos calcinados de uma fogueira o autor manipulou digitalmente a imagem obtida de forma a obter o trabalho surreal de um grafismo sugestivo. Memórias de ritos ancestrais e de maldições não purificadas são a cinza azul-violeta que jaz no chão de uma qualquer floresta perdida na memória dos tempos. O cisco e a cinza  contrastam no sol que penetra na meia sombra interior da floresta. Na areia do chão  uma nódoa castanha clara espraia-se contrastando com os ramos escuros calcinados semi-consumidos.....
