THE RIDE OF THE AWAY TEAM 2015
Acrylics on wood
Variable sizes


This is a series of votive paintings and exvotos that illustrate the story of the cult 
The Heaven´s Gate which commited suicide on March 1997 believing that behind 
the comet Hale-Bopp was an UFO waiting to transport them beyond this world to 
the kindom of heaven. Each votive painting is the final statement of each member of 
the Away Team, name they choose for this last ride. This series of paintings are an
invitation to leave the door open to believe that everything can be possible as I have 
done myself.
