Painting: Acrylic, Tempera on Canvas.
This work belongs to my series "Arrancadas" and is based on detaching the paint from the walls of old houses with history and tradition. First I search for old houses that have "history" and some are abandoned, in ruins and have walls with many layers of paint. I select walls that I like and they seem appropriate and then I make some graphic tracings on the wall and then I begin the process of detaching the wall and passing it to a canvas that I have prepared with paint and glue suitable to carry out the process.
I am interested in transferring plastic elements through time, that are translated into a plastic and graphic story.
I use an old technique that comes from the restoration of murals using tempera and acrylic on cotton canvas.
The work is signed from the back and I give a certificate of authenticity.
