This work by Arlati donated to the Hospice is entitled Blanco (White). It recalls the dazzling white effect created by the thick coats of lime whitewash applied every year to freshen and disinfect cottage walls in the Spanish islands. Layer upon layer of whiteness, cracked and worn by sun and wind, revealing the underlying traces of the past; beneath the surface are other colours, other stories, other landscapes. Lines of shadow and light are created by the sun, remaining fixed in the whiteness, that same whiteness of the walls of Ibiza where the artist has expressed all his energy and poetic passion. A vibrant intense medium, full of strength and radiance, that seems to invite us to slide gently within to become absorbed in the light.
