El cuenco roto (The broken bowl)
La Vicaría. Puente de Génave, Jaén. 2019, Solo show.
This exhibition comprises a series of photographs, drawings on paper, and small and large format paintings which together form a narrative story. The lines, marks, colours and forms construct an abstraction based on elements which live alongside each other in the real world and the artistic world.
The artwork on show here implies the liberation of the pictorial concept by means of different media; painting and photography.
To let the bowl fall and spill its contents. A testof the painter's capacity for representation regarding his vision of his environment. The bowl breaks, all the contents are spilt, and everything is liberated. These are all ideas and thoughts. Stories which involve the pictorial genre from a contemporary perspective, such as still life, sculpture, the human form and landscapes. More or less day-to-day life. Eating. Music. The connection of common references between all of the above. A place where images refer in some measure to everything, but especially to painting.
