The weather is a complex and variable system that cannot be predicted with accuracy, much like our own emotions. Similarly are each of our lives we cannot know exactly what our future holds, but for reasons unknown we are part of its creation.
 
This exhibition features landscapes of differing climatic conditions with the necessary variations to be completed by our own observation. This uncertain and vacant space left by the artist is an opportunity to begin a game of co-creating a future in accordance with our own tastes and needs.
 
This constant/continual interaction of covering up vacant spaces in our lives connects us to the wonder of human co-creation that aligns everything, provided we are in a state of peace and happiness, understanding that emotions change naturally like the weather.
- Guillermo Figoli
