The Blue of Ruins

“Arnaldo Roche Rabell’s blue in many ways evokes the end of time or the cosmos itself. In these recent works, it also addresses the very own image of the artistic subject. His blue is the hue of ruin, the ruin of the subject, the ruin of the self-portrait, the ruin of the landscape, the ruin of the world as we know it which has turned into the nightmare of dispossession radical homelessness, turmoil, where all bodies lost their shape and identity, and their place on Earth. Heroism has become hard, almost impossible. According to Roche, ours are unheroic times. Sacrifice seems to lead us nowhere.”    -Lilliana Ramos Collado, Guest Curator
