Scaglia is a Peruvian artist who lives and works in Lima. This piece is oil on unstretched canvas. The piece is a large one that is not done justice by any small scale photograph. It is 123 x 145 cm.
This piece may seem like a simple landscape but it is more than that. The artist's work examines armed conflicts in Peru in past decades. He spent years on the Island of El Fronton, which is off the coast of Lima. The island was a prison island were dissidents were often killed under dictatorships. Scaglia's work is this landscape but it goes deeper into the land and history.
