The exhibition

Tapes

Centro de Arte De Alcobendas, Madrid.

Del 16 de enero al 2 de marzo del 2019

“Bodybuilder ribbons, colorful American ribbon, packing tape … I define them: Tapes…”

“tapes” are visual imagery for me. When I paint my works, I feel them like a piece of Baroque painting, I use to see volumes, forms and shapes of a body and I can see with devotion and analytical vision a simple maskingtape. The three great art genre … landscape, still-life and the human body are constantly present in my work. Along last year, I have had new workshop findings, I have been seeing my studio corners and I have found objects, forms and experiences that I compose in my way after, as if the groups of tapes it were a classic still life … I imagine tapes were waiting for the right light to enter through the window or I imagine the maskingtapes colors like its were photographing with my cellphone those ephemeral moments of the light of my afternoons.

“… There are times that I imagine Morandi entering my studio, composing his bottles or porcelain gossip with my afternoon light, and those moments of workshop I used to talk with him take me to other Twentycentury ages…”. Within the simplicity of my work, I try to capture resounding works, and when I paint my paintings of tapes , and I consider them like big sculptures or strange bodies made with paint. The next exhibition is a reflection of Historical concept of painting and I rely on the exhaustive study still life genre.”
