The Nonsense of Sense

May 18 @ 7:00 pm - May 31 @ 5:00 pm

Free

At this exhibition the public will find two different lines of work, both of them related with humans and colour. These are the most relevant subjects that have always been surrounding my thoughts.

While I was still studying Fine Arts at Vigo University my painting interests were focused on an intention of deconstruction of an image into colour fields, understanding the colour as a way to transmit feelings and creating reality.

Starting from a photographic walk around the city, I took pictures of the people living their lives in public spaces. From those pictures I attempt to break the perspective that our brains are constantly trying to create from the information that our eyes are giving them. Intentionally making the spectator stand by the painting trying to make sense out of it. Using acrylics adding light layers of colour until the surface was as flat as I could. I have named this style abstract figuration.

Little by little my interests started shifting to drawing and watercolor, so the change of media has pushed me towards a new level of discussion, where I began searching for portraits of single women. The nudity of women’s body and feelings, set her free and imprison her at the same time. Each woman is a different universe but at the same time we are all one, so each portrait is my personal view of the power and weakness of the “she” looking for her own space.

Colour is still a powerful tool in these portraits, because the power of colours is always an impulse to get feelings, and what would art be without feelings?
