ABOUT ATLANTE

Artist: Aurelio Rodriguez Lopez

Land of Origin: Spain

To look upon ancient organic relics bathed in moving water feels archaic and natural, but the mind wanders to many mysteries of stories about water. The fact that a great civilization existed and suddenly disappeared remains fascinating. The reflection of the lost continent evokes visions of a mysterious island glistening from the rays of a blazing sun. What ephemeral and brilliant culture its inhabitants must have possessed.

Plato’s texts place Atlantis in front of the Pillars of Hercules, a place attributed to the Strait of Gibraltar that marked the limit of the known world. It is here, on the Atlantic coast of Cádiz where Aurelio has set the scene of this painting. There’s a comfort in knowing that something could exist for so long, and its joy be resurrected so completely with every experience.

Symbolically, the figure represents the Atlantean people and the rocks, which are the last vestiges of paradise lost. This pastel, in all its brilliancy, is a tribute to loveliness that continues to inspire.

ABOUT THE MASTER-GICLÉES

We use the highest possible, colour tested printing process in the IBEX ArtLab. The Master-Giclées are overseen by the artists themselves to ensure that they are exactly as the artists want them. All used materials for the Master-Giclées are acid-free, so they will not turn yellow or go brittle. We use archival pigment inks which have the longest lifespan of any ink currently known.

At IBEX, we believe in providing the highest quality Master-Giclées to match the high quality of our artists. All pieces are produced in our own print, varnishing and framing facilities in Germany. From start to finish each work of art is handled personally by a master printer with more than 20 years of experience in the fine arts.
