About the artwork

This 1970 work comprises a vaulted tower on which soft female figures with vacant stares cling to each other in cascading projections.

 The idea of a return to purity is confronted with the appearance of ragged creatures. Like a tree trunk bent from the jungle, it is the incarnation of civilisation that resists the ever-increasing grip of mechanisation. 

About the artist

Delporte is a painter, sculptor, musician and poet. All his works emanate a 'cosmic and fantastic surrealism' through colourful, undulating, twisting and flowing compositions.
