Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas.

THE PAINTINGS SECTION FROM DAVIS MUSEUM

The Davis Lisboa Mini-Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona

What / who inspired the work?
This painting was inspired by "Boîte-en-valise", 1936-1941, by the French Dadaist artist Marcel Duchamp.

What do you hope viewers will feel / think?
I hope the viewers think that the act of making an oil painting of a Dadaist "readymade" is complete nonsense! And that fascinates me.

Why did you choose the medium, subject matter, style?
I chose this medium because painting is a language that allows me to get a good result. In addition, due to oil painting it is a durable material. I chose the gray, because it makes the painting looks like an old photograph of the early twentieth century. This detail can provide a subtle critique of the Duchamp's work: send "Boîte-en-valise" to obsolescence. On the other hand, I have chosen this very precise, professional and not personal style to connect with some old works of Duchamp, such as "Chocolate Grinder" (No. 1), 1913.
