The American magazine Liturgical Arts Journal has dedicated an article to our intervention in the parish of San Agustín in Granada, which we carried out in 2017. Our intervention consisted in the design of an altarpiece that would integrate the liturgical elements in the temple and elevate its dignity.
In the words of the author of the text, Shawn Tribe, "the final result is a coherent and integral altarpiece, which gives a new order and prominence to the altar and the tabernacle. It is not only more ornate, but much more noble, beautiful and simple; an apparent paradox that we never tire of pointing out."
The altarpiece was made of polychrome wood using the marble technique. With this, the main altar, made of green and red marble, was imitated, so that everything is united as if it were one piece, thus recovering the original liturgical sense of the altarpieces.
For its part, the altarpiece provides a sober and balanced frame where the painting and sculptures are integrated, and where the altar and the tabernacle stand out. "Whereas the previous order lacked artistic focus and merit, being instead an uneven hodgepodge, the new one provides the necessary order and beauty that divine worship deserves."
