José-Antonio Sarmiento (1956-2022): In Memoriam
We regret to tell you that our beloved José-Antonio passed away on March 25 in Göteborg, at home and accompanied by his wife Helena and sister María Jesús, after a period of illness.
He passed in peace and will be remembered through his art. His works are eternal and offer solace in this difficult time.
Helena Andersson and María Jesús Sarmiento
SOMETHING HAPPENS Something happens in Nature when a human being dies The trees that saw us when we were born grow quiet and tighten in their verdure They commemorate us in their annual rings The grass that bent under our feet rises victoriously in its silence When a human being dies she moves into the trees and the grass That’s why it always wizzes with life when the wind rustles through the trees and causes the grass to whisper Peter Curman English translation: Carl Fredrik Gildea
