In Persiana, we are confronted with the subtle effect that roller blinds (with their thin, parallel slats) have on our vision. 'Persiana' is the Spanish and Italian term applied to these sorts of sunblinds, serving to protect against light and heat.  At the same time they reveal/conceal what plays out within. Another term for this kind of shutter is 'jalousie', evoking associations with suspicion, paranoia and privacy. This work stimulates the viewer to think about the painting as a window on reality, and questions the relationship between that which is shown and that which remains hidden.
