Description:

It’s funny the way the artist uses the human being to, in the end, draw what turns out to be an owl, a deaf animal that is however equipped with a very developed perception. The only realistic element is the beak located at the center of the painting, as a clue to help inter- pretation (let’s remember that Marzal doesn’t try to be obscure, he wants to be understood). Once more, the eyes send us back to the ears in a synesthetic game of reasons and of the body parts that canalize them. The upper hands remains open on a black si- lent background. But the lower hand rmly holds a sound bubble.
