Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Oil, Gesso, Color, Black & White on Canvas.

My recent work explores the two parts that we all have, the "me" that we show and the inside one of ourselves, the hidden one. Mark Twain said that every man is a moon with a hidden face that never shows anyone. I represent this on the canvas with a painting done in a more or less classical way, using oils and acrylics, this would be the face we showed. Once finished and duly dried I transfer the image used as a motive for the painting over the canvas resulting a black and white image . This creates a work that navigates between color and black and white, the thin and smooth layer of paint versus the texture caused by the transfer and the mediums used for it or the finished figure of the painting in front of the broken image result of the transfer. This idea is clearly extrapolated to the use we give to social networks and the difference between our lives "offline" and "online" where in many cases not everything is as we show or where we pour hidden opinions into invented profiles
