          Bold, broad swathes of an assortment of pigments, the abundance  of drama and gravity in this masterpiece is incomparable. Sliding upon the surface and space, colliding in a salvo of angular intersection.   Romulo Olazo hurls thunderbolts of darkness: a revelry and desecration in one taking.

          Different cracks and shapes reveals different kinds of brokenness.  While, various tones represents an encapsulation of multifold of feelings: dull hues of gray personifies hopelessness, solitude for black, red for dimensions of fear and soft tones of blue for calmness.  This oeuvre by Olazo is an icon of redemption, embodying that brokenness can still be beautiful for it brings in light that allows our soul to flicker.
