This totally changes the way to view a painting; detached from its universe, the painting jumps up a dimensional level to become a three dimensional object without leaving its condition of image, the object-image, troubles the conceptual limits in a universe of surfaces. Emancipated from its frame, the Liquid Painting also represents the vulgar temporality of the instant, fixing our society’s inert present of a continuous of flashes in which we live.
It is easy to think that the image is reversible, but it is not. The image in Liquid Painting is in two different states simultaneously like the particles of the future generation quantum computers: the qubits. In the same way as to study this particles it is necessary to “fix” them in one particular state, 1 or 0, Liquid Painting becomes recto or verso, positive or negative, it is impossible to see both states at once because they are one and inseparable whole, they feed from each other and they must be understood as a simultaneity of existences.
Some figurative works are transformed by light. If it is placed behind the light unveils the physical process suffered by the paint on manipulation, showing imperfections, transparencies, holes and areas more or less translucent which brake the subject into an abstract image, leading the viewer to focus on the brush strokes and the paint’s whims. Playing with the intensity of light engages the duality reality/perception; when the light is off, the subject of the painting is perfectly visible but when light appears behind it, and this can be in a gradual or sudden manner, the figurative subject will disappear to give way to a disordered mass of paint. The light will brake the figurative into abstract and vice versa, unifying and destroying them both to enable the reconstruction from each other, freezing at will the otherwise inseparable simultaneity of states.
I allow myself to explore styles really different according to the principle of fragmentation of the self in multiple lives of our time, extending my research to follow the many possibilities that cross my projects.
