Davis Lisboa, "Marcel Duchamp #1 (Paintings)", 2012, oil on canvas, 11,8 x 11,8 x 1.57 in (30 x 30 x 4 cm)

Francesc Torres Collection, Barcelona, Spain.

What / who inspired the work?
This work has been inspired by Gerhard Richter's paintings, who has done a magnificent group of paintings created from banal images found in magazines or newspapers.
What do you hope viewers will feel / think?
I hope the viewers ask themselves: Is it possible to paint a blurred portrait of someone, in which the model is unrecognizable? What is the secret that keeps this lack of detail? Could you consider this painting as a criticism?

Why did you choose the medium, subject matter, style?
I chose oil painting on canvas because it is a language that allows me to achieve satisfactory good results. I chose this "impressionist" style because it was appropriate for blur the Duchamp's face.
