For a few days of the summer of 2011 Karina Beltran house photographed Bosnian artist Stipo Pranyko origin in Tahiche, Lanzarote. In this place so suited to their way of being and living, to create and understand the world, Stipo Pranyko filed a dialogue with himself. Isolation, loneliness, silence fostered by stimulated their work environment; a constant search for the essence of speaking objects and corners of the house, its white architecture, bare, stripped of frills.

A eulogy of sobriety and simplicity, in short, that captures Karina Beltran "yellow (for the house Pranyko stipo)". It is a picture-book containing images that at first served as a complement to the exhibition in TEA Tenerife Espacio de las Artes, which has now added some unpublished shots, one limited edition, numbered and signed by the artist.

This new release can be understood as a poetic journey or a mere inventory of detainees times: stays realize everyday scenarios creator, inhabited corners and forever fixed in the memory caches of light, melancholy objects motionless on his last trip between things, a few months before the artist said farewell to the island and set up permanent residence in Munich.

A glass with dried flowers, an alarm clock, a coffee maker, a spoon. A set of keys, fruit plates that make subtle still life, still lifes ... It is the heart that beats objects in this walk we proposed Karina Beltran, full of doorknobs that invite us to enter, windows and curtains playing with the wind, with the chiaroscuro. Is "the relevant from the irrelevant," said the poet Melchor Lopez in one of the texts included in the publication; these interior landscapes speak of the "realm of the small," notes the critic and curator of that show, Isidro Hernandez Gutierrez, but also of the "strangeness rests on objects when they are alone, lost in their serenity, useless accomplices of a life lived precariously and rudeness-the Stipo Pranyko- contrary to indulgences welfare ".
