A vibrant and hallucinatory aura radiates from both the music of Sleep and the images of sacred painting. Holy Mountain is based upon the chromatic effects of aerial perspective; a pictorial technique frequently employed by certain masters of the Renaissance, which consist of emphasising depth by a succession of colour gradations and an attenuation of shapes.
Holy Mountain seeks to intensify these characteristics by means of manipulating overlays of forms and colours accentuated by use of a riso printer. This collection, a link between the emanations of spirituality of religious painting, the Sleep‘s mystic lyrics under the influence of opiates and the initiatory trip of La Montana Sagrada of Alejandro Jodorowsky, is proposed as amodest link between popular and religious culture. Despite its iconoclastic appearance, “Holy Mountain” is a homage to sacred painting and to the genius of its masters.
