Statement【創作自述】

The paintings selected for the exhibition in Haohaus belong to three different series on my work. Despite all the artworks are finished and signed within last four years, this three periods are easily recognizable as they mean quite different paths which approach to the common subjects that have always been present at my artistic career.

In recent years I have often returned to the idea of creation as a double symbolic act -of construction and destruction at once- and the artifice understood as an opposite and a substitute for the natural. This way I call into question my own work, as well as the role of the individual-creator in society and in nature. The series of decorative objects made between 2013 and 2014 are a good illustration of this. Conscious of the occidental tradition of still life and the ancient genre of vanitas painting, my work in the conception of these pieces is to assume and carry out my role of maker in order to create ironic games of representation.

The older painting titled And that was called love is one of the last works where I sought in animal world analogies that could help me to interpret and try to understand human behavior and social roles. After the European economic crisis and the frustrated so-called Spanish revolution in 2011, I found myself in a historical moment where the curtain of orders was fallen. It was easy to notice the clear difference between predator and scavenger. When the pet faces shortage, he understands he has neither nails nor fangs anymore. In this distortion of the animal I find an interesting convergence between wildness and civilization. Is there really a limit?

The encounter points are part of a series I am currently working on, which reflect on the relationship human-nature through the isolation of a precise moment. It is an encounter, which sometimes can be expressed in a detail, a gesture that does not require describing the place. They are plausible scenes that may lean toward the absurd. They evoke memories, everyday situations or topics. Often they hide mythological references as well.

於好思當代展覽的作品中,共可分為三個系列。這些作品雖然都完成於過去四年之中,而這三種系列是容易分辨的,因為他們有著不同的創作主題,而這些主題常見於我的藝術生涯之中。

近年來,我經常回朔到『創作即是一項雙重象徵行為』的想法-同時創建;也同時毀滅—這被認為應是相互矛盾與互補的自然法則。於是我開始質疑我自己的創作,同時也質疑各個創作者之於社會、大自然,所扮演的角色。我於2013年到2014年間創作的『裝飾品物體』系列,就是描繪以上想法的作品。為了表現諷刺的遊戲,注意到歐美的靜物傳統與幻象繪畫中的古典風格,我的作品在這些概念中也帶出了我身為創作者的角色功能。

標題為“這就是所謂的愛”的作品,是我在動物世界比喻中的最後一部作品之一,它可以幫助我解釋和嘗試理解人類行為和社會角色。 在歐洲經濟危機和2011年西班牙革命之後,當秩序的帷幕倒下,我發現我正處在一個歷史重要時刻了。 很容易察覺到捕食者和清道夫之間的明顯差別。 當寵物面飢寒交迫時,他會明白他沒有指甲和ang牙了。在動物的這種扭曲生態中,我發現野性和文明之間有趣的相似處,你確定它們之間真的有所謂界限嗎?

這個『相遇觀點』是我目前正在創作的系列一部分,作品畫面都似恰好的時刻隔離,反映了人性關係。 這是一次相遇,有時可以用細節來表達,不需要描述地點的手勢。 他們的場面可能傾向於荒謬。 他們喚起回憶,日常情況或話題。 通常他們也隱藏其中神話的成分。
