EXPLOSION OF FATE
by Brad Evans, 2016

Red skies burn

Over Zacatecas Skies

Like the dust reaching

For the heavens

A contradiction of times

 

Giving rise to memories

Of this bitter sweet land

Where hopes and pains collide

Passing through tender hands

 

But the earth returns silent

And so the poets retreat

To gaze upon Eros

And her landscapes of wine

 

So the dust falls to earth

And the memory awakes

To the dawn of a new tomorrow

And this explosion of fate

The Museum holds a permanent collection of Interventions on wine Barrels by Mexican artists.

 

" My piece was the first one to be completely broken apart and abstracted from its original form. Due to my experience working with stone, I wanted not only to carve the wood, but use the internal natural red colour to inspire my subject. A sculpture in which the wine becomes the “blood” that will preserve and regenerate live. "
