THE PAINTING SECTION FROM DAVIS MUSEUM

The Davis Lisboa Mini-Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona

Davis Lisboa, "Marcel Duchamp #7 (Tonsure)", 2017, oil on canvas, 15.7 x 15.7 x 1.57 in (40 x 40 x 3.5 cm)

What inspired the work?
Conceptually, I have been inspired by a Man Ray's black and white photograph titled "Tonsura, Marcel Duchamp" (1921). Formally, I have been inspired by the Gerhard Richter's paintings.

What do you expect your viewers to think?
I hope that viewers think that this painting is just a piece of a larger collection that is titled "The Paintings Section From Davis Museum". This section is just one of the twenty existing sections in the Davis Museum, a cultural entity which I founded in 2009.

"The Paintings Section From Davis Museum" has two main genres: portraits and still lifes. The portraits focus on the artists who created their own museums, which are Marcel Duchamp, Robert Filliou and Marcel Broodthaers. The still lifes focus on the works created by these artists, which are "Boîte-en-valise", "La galerie légitime" and "Musée d'Art Moderne, Département des Aigles", respectively.

Why did you choose the medium and the color?
I chose the oil on canvas as a medium because it is very sophisticated, shiny, sutble and durable. I only use the best materials for my paintings: linen fabrics, turpentine oil and linseed oil from Blockx and Old Holland oil paintings.

I chose the blue color because it is the Davis Museum Brand Color: Pantone 647 C.
