THE GUIRADO ESTATE COLLECTION

“The great experiment of consciousness” by Juan Antonio Guirado: 

Human evolution is now at a precipice created by itself  

This same awareness that fought for millions of years to ensure human survival 

Finds itself at the threshold of exhausting the planet's resources 

Of making its environment once again uninhabitable and of creating the instruments of its own destruction. 

Ultimately the serious need for material and abuses of human evolution 

Converge to create a situation which, in the long term, 

We are required to do nothing more than make changes. 

We are in a race between self-discovery and self-destruction 

The forces which may converge for our destruction are the same that can incite 

social and self-discovery… 

“El gran experimento de la conciencia”, de Juan Antonio Guirado: 

La evolución humana se halla ahora ante un precipicio creado por si misma 

Esta misma conciencia 

Que lucho durante millones de a(n)os para asegurar la supervivencia humana  

Se halla actualmente al umbral de agotar los recursos de su planeta 

De volver inhabitable su entorno y de crear los instrumentos de su propia aniquilación. 

En definitiva la grave necesidad material y las prevalidas de la evolución humana  Convergen para crear una situación en la que a largo plazo 

Estamos obligados a no hacer menos que realizar cambios 

Estamos en medio de una carrera entre el autodescubrimiento y la autodestrucción 

Las fuerzas que pueden converger para nuestra destrucción son las mismas que pueden fomentar  

El descubrimiento social y el propio

When asked how he would describe his own painting, Guirado replied, “I would describe it as Intrarealist painting. It is the type of painting that one has to see with the third eye, the eye of the mind."
