THE PAINTINGS SECTION FROM DAVIS MUSEUM

The Davis Lisboa Mini-Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona

Davis Lisboa, "Robert Filliou #5", 2016, oil on canvas, 11,8 x 11,8 in (30 x 30 cm)


What/who inspired the work?
I was formally inspired by the photorealistic paintings by the German artist Gerhard Richter.

What do you hope its viewers will feel/think?
I hope the viewers can see how the painting is constructed with so delicate brushstrokes. The painting presents a blurred bust of a figure with a top hat (a small sculpture) and I wish this figure create a kind of mystery. I also hope the viewers discover the hide relationship between the painting with the Davis Museum art project.

Why did you choose the medium, subject matter, style?
I chose painting because it is a language that interests me deeply. I also chose this subject matter (top hat) because it is related to the work "Galerie légitime" by Robert Filliou, so important reference for understanding the Davis Museum art project. I chose this "impressionist style" because it allows me to create a certain mystery in the painting.
