“The peculiarity of the neighbourhood of La Boca and the amazing crepuscular silence of its backyards can be recognized in any of Gorrochategui’s paintings” But any of its paintings recognises itself the painter. His particular style involves a synthesis of the architectural structures of the houses in La Boca, the beautiful harmony between brown and grey deliciously blended , the poor and the rich at the same time, the ghostly creatures whose presence highlights the silence and the darkness of the dusk in the backyards, the indescribable light…”
