In a continuous purification of forms, Cesc Abad elevates the figure of the man and their personal relationships to main characters, thus giving them the main role, as if it were a play. It shows us scenes that, far away from being customary, they become an exhibition of doubts, desires and lusts of the human being.
Light appears as a backbone element between man and wisdom, which at the same time provides knowledge and doubts.
