The RedLine is Alejandro Áboli’s most intimate artistic project after more than a decade working as a filmmaker and photographer in Madrid, London, and New York. Influenced by Surrealism and playing with reality and fiction, Áboli reduces images to their simplest forms to capture the delicate relationship between real and imaginary worlds. The RedLine does not represent life as you know it, but life as you dream it. Limited Edition Fine Art photography prints.

Alejandro Aboli's work (1980) transcends the boundaries of photography. Through digital tools and collage, Aboli creates unique characters and scenarios that would be impossible otherwise: "With my work, I develop an additional dimension that is also an extra layer of meaning." His work, which draws inspiration from cinema – Lachapelle, Nolan, Wong Kar-Wai – and uses photography, tells stories that channel emotions and guide viewers towards deep reflection about the self. More than composing, he overlays. Aboli employs techniques of photograph decomposition and image assembly to create new scenarios that deconstruct the world we know. His work is a line between the real world and fiction that appeals to everything that is not but exists within us. The real world remains present in the fragments extracted from images captured with conventional techniques, and the surreal, imaginary, and dreamlike emerge when all these real components come together. "Each image is composed like a painting where visual elements intertwine to tell a story." He works with digital composition as a medium and approaches painting conceptually: he understands his works as paintings insofar as they start from a blank canvas and are composed from scratch using loose images that only become surreal ensembles when they come together. Aboli's work has a playful element that facilitates the connection between these two worlds and allows viewers to travel to that borderland between their past and present, or between their present and future. This playful component takes its starting point from "The RedLine," the first series created by Aboli, which still today forms the basis of his production: the bordering and transversal nature, the red line, and the Ariadne's thread that connects two dimensions. From that first series, there is also a certain reminiscence of pop art that appeals to contemporary lifestyle and poses how certain everyday objects have a great influence on us. Thanks to this, Aboli is able to explore common patterns that define our behavior and analyze the elements that affect the individual and the common factors that define the society in which we live. He uses well-known symbols, taking popular iconography to present us with his own universe in which he challenges conventions.
