About this work:

Gálvez payd homage to the genius of Luis Buñuel in the year 2000, the year in which the centenary of Buñuel's birth was celebrated throughout the whole world. Buñuel and Gálvez met at the Hotel l'Aiglon in Paris during their shared exile, and became close friends. These images come from the work that Gálvez did during the filming of La Vía Láctea in 1969. In this film Buñuel, the eternal iconoclast, uses irony to attack the rites and dogmas of the catholic tradition.

The screen print Buñuel y el espíritu santo (Buñuel and the Holy Spirit) similarly comes from a superbly inspired photographic montage of the artist. Using just a spotlight and a candle, Gálvez creates the illusion of Buñuel being strangely illuminated and mystical. From the virtuoso, photographic interplay of reality and its artistic manipulation are born two screen prints which radiate magic.
