I fell in love with Norberto Marrero’s complex prints of fools errands and misguided kings in 2003.

A road made of dreams, is a path made of scars, of fragments, of screams.

Who has the time to walk your with feet. Who goes in the shadows, lazy and stupid, not to know the fate of the stones. You do not know how much agony cherishes the gaze of the walker. Ah, the dreams of walking!
