This untitled work shows Zalameda’s use of Cubism. In the 1960s, Zalameda’s cubistic shapes became bolder. From the 1970s onwards, bold shapes of loud colors were used by the artist to execute genre scenes.
Lines become seemingly transparent facets of color which define the leaves, the church and the huts. The artist’s juxtaposition of bold colors transforms the leaves and the huts into abstract patterns.The overall visual vibrance notwithstanding, the artist has caught the peaceful mood of the place in the blue tonalities breaking through the leaves.
