Gervasio Robles (AR)
Gervasio Robles is an Argentinian printmaker living in South Africa. The artist uses the etching and aquatint technique. Robles seems to take inspiration from his cultural heritage and his surroundings in order to create a surprising and ironic approach to a classic theme – hunting. In the scene presented, the viewer is confronted with a display of wild animals, hunting trophies. Each animal is playing a different role: some animals seem alive, some dead, some hold objects and are prepared to entertain us. All of the animals observe the viewer. So the power of man over nature is questioned, as suddenly the hunter becomes the hunted.
