Material Life

The Goma, Calle Fúcar 12

The exhibition aims to provide cause for reflection on aspects of contemporary representation, on the idea of a figuration that coexists with the end of painting as window – a coherent and complete place of representation and narration – which continues to survive as inevitable drive. This troubled and fragmentary figuration dialogues with and reinterprets the entity of a painting as an objective presence, taking up a position in its meanders, even in the pores and the creases of its canvas.

Material Life” is therefore a presentation of figures, with a reference to elements of reality or potential images or fleeting epiphanies in a landscape thick with materiality tending towards abstraction or monochrome. The show also bespeaks genres, of painting’s inevitable tendency to return to classical – landscapes, still lifes, portraits – even in the uneven and disjointed space of the canvas.
