Francesca Maffeo Gallery is delighted to present ‘The Dialogue of the Dogs’ by Richard Page, This new body of work is a documentary project that depicts the cultural, political and economic landscape of central Spain today.
‘The Dialogue of the Dogs’ takes its title from the Cervantes novel of the same name, in which we imagine two dogs given the gift of speech for one night. In Cervantes’ story, the two dogs tell of the cruelty of their masters and corruption of humanity.
“Like a modern day Don Quixote, Page sets out on a voyage across La Mancha, Spain, and much like Cervantes’ hero he manages to reveal the timeless essence of the land. Quiet and surreal, the landscapes in ‘The Dialogue of the Dogs’ are the setting for unexpected encounters, resonances of Cervantes’ main themes: power, illusion and truth.” Rodrigo Orrantia, Art Historian and Curator
