Artwork Description: Saint Michael the Archangel, head of the heavenly army, is illustrated by Christian iconography as a victor in the fight against the forces of evil, represented by the dragon or the serpent. In Acevedo’s artworks, the Archangel is the representation of human nature in an existential struggle, the battle is not fought in heaven but in the heart of each individual. It is not always the light that prevails but the darkness from which the ghost of war arises. The defeat of the Archangel is the defeat of humanity and the destruction of the environment.
