“It often seems as though Cossío has taken as a starting point a classical composition from one of the Old Masters and transported the arrangement into another dimension, taking the original from its specific context and leaving us with an expertly depicted arrangement of figures in empty space. Thus, compositions have religious or classical compositions (such as “Crucifixion II”), and yet they nevertheless succeed in being resolutely contemporary.”

From: “Juan Cossio at the Albemarle Gallery London"

"A menudo parece como si Cossío hubiera tomado como punto de partida una composición clásica de uno de los Viejos Maestros y transportado la disposición a otra dimensión,trasladando el original desde su contexto específico a una  experta composición de las figuras en un espacio vacío. De este modo, las composiciones, aunque sean  religiosas o clásicas (como "Crucifixión II"), siempre resultan absolutamente contemporáneas.
