Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas.

THE PAINTINGS SECTION FROM DAVIS MUSEUM

The Davis Lisboa Mini-Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona

Davis Lisboa, “La galerie légitime #5 (Paintings)", 2017, oil on canvas, 11,8 x 11,8 x 1.57 in (30 x 30 x 3,5 cm)

What/who inspired the work?
I was inspired by the Robert Filliou's artwork titled "La galerie légitime" (1964), a "commercial art gallery created in a brain of anyone, signed by a hat.

What do you hope its viewers will feel/think?
I hope viewers understand I am creating a collection of oil paitnings for The Davis Museum in Barcelona. This painting titled "La galerie légitime #5 (Paitintings) is a kind of joke of a joke. It is a kind of criticism about the "La galerie légitime" by Filliou.

Why did you choose the medium?

I chose the oil painting on canvas because it is a very sophisticated and durable technique. They can withstand in good condition for centuries. For this reason, I only use the best material: linen, Blockx essence of turpentine and linseed oil and Old Holland oil paintings. This is the only section of the museums in which the works are for sale.
