                                                         a digital artist; he works with paradigmatic images
                                                          from  religious  iconography.  these  images  are
                                                          composed in a constructive way, using microtons
                                                          giving  them  the  appearance  of  a  chromatic
                                                          “pointillism”, this technique allows him to capture
                                                          the light intervals of the faces and figures selected
                                                          for this theme. through his artwork, the artist is
                                                         searching to recover the spiritual bond, once lost
                                                         between the human and the divine. the answer
                                                        to so many questions about the human condition
                                                       could be found through the metaphysics. and these
                                                      are Eduardo pla,s beliefs.
                                                    according to Jorge Glusberg, “pla’s art is not virtual
                                                   because  it  is  there  for  us  to  see  and  observe,  it  is
                                                 both present and consistent.  but it is undeniable that
                                               his  work  conjures  virtuosity  and  can  be  defined  as  an
                                            art of the virtual”.
