ANTONIO TERCERO

FROM THE CURATOR

Antonio Tercero Mora's work is inserted into urban painting. He presents us with disturbing atmospheres of gloom and silence. His compositions are located in the
periphery, in that limit line of the real and the dreamlike. His towers that hold fences advertising contrast with heavy skies, often isolated buildings, rise imposingly in the midst of desolation. On the other hand trees and palm trees flee fleetingly across the horizon of the fabric, totally blackened industries making us see the crushing passage of time and the human life.
