A long time ago we wanted to work Mariajosé, but when we saw the new work in his studio, something stirred within us, we could not find words to describe whatwe were witnessing.
Altarpieces, Baroque, old and new, coats, objects of worship, biblical episodes,psicokillers, funeral prayers, military look, ornament ... these are just words meant to evoke the paintings of Mariajosé, but it will not be possible only throughlanguage.
