Tribute to the House Painter
Original title: Homenatge al pintor de parets
Mixed media and collage on wood
Dimensions: 200 x 100 cm
The artwork, whose title is an ironic reference to the act of painting, introduces a variety of elements taken from an everyday context. In doing so, however, it makes no attempt to celebrate the mundane, but rather strives to recreate its most grotesque and invasive presence. The painting comes closer to a ‘scene’ than an image and contains several elements that approach a pop aesthetic with pop referring to popular in the strictest sense. As a result, the semantic short circuit that occurs when observing this three-dimensional representation produces a strong feeling of disconcerted surprise in the spectator, inviting him or her to reconsider the relationship between art and reality.
