Under a torrid light that burns, a crowd of colourful and enigmatic characters - of a petrous appearance and of elusive eyes – occupies up to overflowing, a space that seems to be made of solitude and silence. Among this mass of polymorphous beings, emphasises the figure of a mask with bulging eyes and long hair, which that contemplates with an expression of fear and the presence of an anguish-skull mask.

The mockery of a drama with a mythological reverse transcript. It is not Venus, who mourns the death of Adonis, it is Eros portrayed as a stubborn Adonis, who mourns the death of Aphrodite, goddess of beauty and love. The metaphorical death, after all well known to neither the gods nor goddesses dies, as much they metamorphose. But, what we really lament and mourn here, even though it has been painted in jocular and mocking key is a very serious episode. Here, we talk in a metaphor for the death of love itself; the loss of passion and desire, that in the twilight of the beauty of the beautiful flesh, is announced - "As the light goes out" - the next and fatal decrepitude.

Description: Its multiple meanings, this work is, again, an infringement of another classical irreverent myth. Behind various veils, we guess somewhere the presence of Aglaia, Talia and Euphrosyne - (joy, youth and pleasure) - occupying a place in an urban setting - lewd and licentious suburb - that has nothing to do with the idealized, bucolic and pastoral décor with which Rubens and other artists represented them.

Description: We are back against a metaphor that explains a way (symbolized by the ladder) forced a transition - going from the cradle to the grave - where everyone has to discourse. This painting of a funeral mood and procession rhythm is a magna antithesis, a capital contradiction, a thin irony-laden black humour, which the profane is expressed with religious fervour and the sacred comes loaded with pagan accents. (The subtitle - "From the cradle to the grave" - has been taken from a drawn from a homonym musical composition by Hector Berlioz that the painter takes as a theme of inspiration and where the painting is based and justified.

Description: This work of art recreates a mundane scene; is like a still frame of a transitive moment and shooting that portrays a festive print. An unexpected event that is about to break the apparent stillness of the group. The tension is palpable in the air. What does the group notice of people located at the top of the flight of stairs? The paled facial expression of the character that turns the viewer’s profile and the contained fear in his eyes (ready to explode into a scream) predicts that is nothing good. Of course, something happens.

Description: A spectral light surrounds the whole scene. It is a metaphysical glow, flush, which comes from above. A ghostly presence of polymorphs beings as coming from the underworld gathers an unreal space as impossible as themselves. The anthropoid, while sleeping, refuses to close its large crystal eye. The night is the fear of the unknown. The night is a nightmare and fever. The night are strange noises. The night is a shadow of spectral lights. Night is the dream of the reason. The night is a convention of cats. The night are visitors from other regions and other planets. The night comes ...... sleep with open eyes.

Description: Tragicomic episode - theatrical satirist whose action is determined around a character with elastic or rubbery appearance that "throws" his mighty accusing finger against an individual who is betrayed publicly in the midst of a cohort of polymorphs, impertinent witnesses of the cause. This work of art illustrates the culmination of the technique that the artist begins with a series of drawings of the 2004/2007period. The economy of resources, sobriety in the use of colour, purity and cleanliness of the invoice for the use of "tone down" the preciousness and delicacy almost "gothic" of finishes, leads us by reflex to the Florentine quattrocento Italian painting.

Description: Inside a cavity of a rocky marine reef or lake, a group of enigmatic creatures and unreal perch tight at the top of the cavern. This rocky space does not appear to be an occasional refuge, nor do its occupants seem to be people in distress. The title of the work of art could help us identify them if it were not maliciously applied in a wrong and misleading way; worse still, the word "aquanaut" has not been wedged yet so devoid of definition, “The Water Crew?” Abdicate any other interpretation that goes beyond mere anthropology. The "aquanauts" are fantastic creatures, who love the water and where Eros appears half-hidden, wrapped in a beautiful, haunting and enigmatic costume.

Description: This is a curious and interesting piece, where the ambivalence of images, (common and recurrent in the last production of Muriel), are evident in this very clearly circular work of art. If we invert the point of view by rotating a few degrees, we will discover other things, as in the work of Muriel, as in life, nothing is as it seems.

Description: This transcript has captured the interest of many artists throughout the history of art, from the Early Middle Ages until today. The representation that Muriel makes this episode results to be highly original by its treatment. The decoration that AM builds does not correspond to the desert, where Saint Anthony was tempted; it is more like a nightmare in itself, and in this surrealist scene, where they are placed as a unique image and all the successive temptations suffered by the saint.

Description: Part of the first cast of drawings of a great created format by following the principles of the Method. It is like the rest of the drawings that set out an exercise of the great virtuosity technique, having been qualified at its day the by critic, Javier Rubio Nomblot, in a magisterial form. This work of art refers to the flow of population, in a peaceful or violent manner, which has periodically rocked, throughout all times, the foundations of mankind.

Description: If the Utopians are the inhabitants of the Republic of Utopia, the Chuchumecos are the inhabitants of the Republic of Chuchumeca. They are governing by inept politicians, sectarian and corrupt liars. It is governed by laws that are not complied or applied in arbitrary manner, capricious, interested and unfair ambitious and corrupt judges. Much of the population lives off delusion and deception; their face is scarred by vice and the soul eaten away by envy. They are overpowered by greed, ambition and ignorance. They are cheaters, liars, manipulators, evil, selfish, wretched, miserable, ridiculous and despicable.

Description: Want to be a "vanity" elaborate humour expressed in code and as usual in the work of AM is offered to us full of poignancy and sarcasm. This iconographic ultra-reality speaks with a cryptic language and symbolic of the futility of things, of the banality of the world and the precariousness of our existence, because all that is left at the end of life is what the Cardinal Portocarrero wrote as an epitaph on his tomb: "DUST, ASHES AND NOTHING.”

Description: More than just a representation of a physical space, it appears to be the representation of a psychological space; of a violent change of an emotional group sign. Something provokes in a sector of the crowd gathered of metamorphic beings, a sensation or feeling of fear of an unknown origin and effect that causes a panic disordered escape through the staircase of the steep alley.

Description: A silvery light, surely from the moon, illuminates the entire scene. Scattered, serving as background, there are a few scattered cottages of humble appearance. Tasters of the night (polymorphic and multiracial people) roam the streets animatedly. This work exhales very special aromas and a strange aftertaste flavoured of an old colony from the Hispanic America. White, mulatto, and black (as in the paintings of Pedro Figari) seem to monopolize the scenery alike. A couple of the latter elegantly dressed and with mocking air tearing into the oblique scene ... white, mulatto, and black, Tabaco, rum and Cuban coffee aromas.

Description: Elegiac work like no other where the representation of the binomial life-death appears distributed throughout the surface thereof. The bombastic and theatrical composition is available as a great picture stage, which seems to represent, with a dreamlike vision and surreal, what might be the last episode of the Passion of Christ. The backdrop is full of meanings. The houses that open to the left and right evoke urban profiles of the neighbourhood in Madrid hosting the artist since his arrival in the capital. The street that opens with steep staircases (top centre) is an evocation of his native Cáceres.

Description: He refers to a brothel, where the characters from all conditions are intertwined by interest of business or pleasure. The presence and the mood of this work brings it closer to a rare synergy to the traditional internal compositions of Dutch painting: a brooding atmosphere and of certain stillness, quiet and intimate space encouraged by a unique symbolic content, (Jan Steen, Frans Hals, etc. ...), the term "Dutch Interior" recognizes this genre that eventually resulted to be topic. Joan Miró also used it as a formula full of humour and irony to name one of his most celebrated works.

The same as its predecessors, this sculpture is determined by using a mixed technique with metal and paper pulp. It is part of the work entitled, "Meninas Sacred Icon" which belonged to the travelling Exhibition, "Other Meninas". It is an expressionist work that exudes grace, humor and ease, striking a pose and bearing nothing usual about the representation of this universal icon.
