IMAGES IN THE INTERREGNUM

My painting announces through its characters a world capable of losing its securities. Pandemics, technological revolutions as well as the destruction of human anthropology and nature illuminate the current dystopia in all possible fields.

 

From a formal point of view and to analyze not only the "what" but also the "how", I have developed a ductus, a pictorial trace, that allows me to analyze the forms of the gaze in order to be able to think about how we build the world. This ductus is heir to Cézanne's perspectivism. It is a pictorial stroke that does not close the forms and the lines but rather that accumulates them and makes them works as pieces that partially produce for a general composition whose purpose is unknown. All of them: spots, colors, contours live in the Deleuzian field of intensities. Rhizomatically they appear and disappear without establishing chiaroscuro protocols.

 

This accumulation, this collecting of images, this totality of DATA, is so far as its ubiquity does not have a civilizing, humanistic bias, but rather it fragments us and forces us to exist by increasing, expanding the palette of production.

 

Despite the fact that my characters live in the 21st century, as a society they have not been able to overcome the Nietzschean Deconstruction with a hammer and have made it a postmodernism non-stop, automated, concreted and tyrannical both against anthropology itself and against nature.
