EL SANTO

2002 Lacquered wood, fluorescent tube and electrical components. 59 x 17-1⁄4 x 19-1⁄2 in  (149,8 x 44,5 x 49,5cm) Santo, or the "Saint chair" is a signed and numbered limited edition piece, hand crafted out of native Chilean wood, which is later dyed. The halo on top of the chair lights up to "illuminate" the innocent reader. The piece represents another exercise on his personal obsession with life and death and his consequent urge to playfully yet seriously invite people to look again.
