This work is the result of my most
sincere feelings captured on canvas. A
re ection of a restlessness transformed
into calm and hope. A whole has
several faces, hence the compositions
are presented on several canvases.
The landscapes in this series follow
common lines. They all have water,
re ections of the sky on the earth and
light, not necessarily in very orthodox
tones, because in reality, the motive of
this work is my search for an answer
to the passage into or out of this world.
This unknown is something common
in the human being and that is where
my search began. Of the one piece in
common, of the essence, of the water.
The great religions agree that water is
purifying and is always present when
we arrive or leave.
Everyone lives and feels the same experience in different ways, therefore this paintings can be rearranged in order to create different landscapes. We can invert the order by creating our own composition we can place them with or without separation, inverted or placed horizontally. The interpretation, as well as the feeling, is free. In this way, my work is not completed until the receiver decides which order they identify the correct interpretation. Linked to this idea the piece has different textures, the canvas can show light colors blazes and at the same time abrupt brushstrokes with un blended colors.
Water is the keystone of all these pieces. The light in this paintings is not constant, it does not have a base source. The shore or islands have no clear reference to any special place in this world, although it is easily recognized as land. But water, water, is the only constant that I have found while documenting myself in the interpretations of different beliefs and religions and that is why I base my work on it.
Details of the work.
3 canvases of 58x150 cm and 4 cm depth. The process of creation consists first of all, the construction of the canvases. They have to be stronger than usual so they can support all the layered material. We used 100 % double knotted cotton fabric with three coats of gesso for priming the canvas. Then a mass of paper pulp is prepared, glued with rabbit glue and white glue to avoid porosity and to ensure fixation. Subsequently, the color mixtures are made with water-based paints to anchor the piece by applying the putty created according to the sketch. After leaving the piece to rest for a week to make sure that the materials are well fixed and that the coated canvas is resistant, we proceed to paint the piece with oil paintings using the traditional method of layers and glazes. Once it is finished and dried we sand some imperfections in the putty so that the pieces can fit perfectly together or with separation.
