Fernando Prats: Church of the Divine Providence, Santiago de Chile
Maria Elvira Iriarte, Art Nexus
“It was not necessary to share a specific belief to engage in an aesthetic dialogue with these works. Prats’ work was made from a world at the edge of any representation or figurative evocation. The language was pure, the result of a profound artistic investigation, which enabled the artist to negotiate the historical distance between the artistic and the sacred, recovering what might be seen as one of the essential characteristics of art at its remote origins–its sacredness as an expression with which transcends man himself.”
