Rafael Trelles catalog "The Imagined Word"


"The artist's subtle commentary, that object or animal, makes the other person's text his own. And by making it his own, he makes it ours. His Alice, who might live in an urbanization in Aguadilla or Yauco, clearly shows that the barriers between what is ours and what is others', what is Puerto Rican and is mis-called "universal", are fragile, permeable, and even false. Trelles' commentary on the works of these writers -Shakespeare, Ionesco, Borges- makes their texts our own through the image that comments on them and does so, in large part, because he suggest, rather than says outright."
