The turreted church must be from a place in Southern or the Mediterranean coast Europe (because of the palm-like configuration of the trees) which Zalameda, a jet set citizen of the world, has visited.
Without human presence, his painting becomes an extensive narrative of time and place, of the listlessness of nature, of architectural mysteries that have the feel of landscape about them.
Lyrical, colorful abstract views of the architecture possess a sense of meditative silence. Time and place are of particular relevance to painters such as Zalameda because of the ephemeral nature of their art.
