THE PAINTINGS SECTION FROM DAVIS MUSEUM

The Davis Lisboa Mini-Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona

Davis Lisboa, "Boîte-en-valise #2", 2016, oil on canvas, 11,8 x 11,8 in (30 x 30 cm)


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What/who inspired the work?
The artwork that inspired me was the "Boîte-en-valise" by Marcel Duchamp. Formally, this piece has inspired me by the black and white photorealistic paintings by the German artist Gerhard Richter.

What do you hope its viewers will feel/think?
I hope the focus of the painting makes the viewers imagine the 89 reproductions of Marcel Duchamp. I hope the viewers can think you can create an imaginary museum only through paintings.

Why did you choose the medium, subject matter, style?
I chose the painting because I can I fix concepts efficiently, without worrying about the fragility of the piece. Oil painting can lkep in good conditions for centuries without undergoing major changes.

I chose this issue because it is totally linked to my project titled Davis Museum, a conceptual exhibition space created by an artist.

I chose this style because it is about a documentary image. I believe that these paintings are not sensory, but conceptual.
