About The Artwork

The first time I saw “A bigger Splash” was with an exercise at the university, in 2001. I was fascinated before that stain bursting into the blue. In 2018 I had the chance to contemplate it, in the flesh, at the Tate Britain in London. I spent a while staring at every single line and every single dot of the foam of that water splash. On the other hand, I am passionate about the work of María Svarbova. I love the symmetry, the stillness, the colours and how distopic her work is. With these two models, I painted these artworks, at the beginning, just for me. I wanted to fuse the Svarbova’s atmosphere and light with the strength of “A bigger Splash”. In the scene that I imagine, the girl of the photo has just dived into the pool, generating that splash of foam and little dots that I love so much. My job in this work revolves around that tacit presence that sharpens the feeling of solitude. ---- La primera vez que vi “A bigger splash” fue en un ejercicio de la facultad, en 2001. Quedé fascinada ante esa mancha irrumpiendo con fuerza en el pleno azul. En 2018 tuve la suerte de verlo en persona, en la Tate Britain de Londres. Me pasé un buen rato mirando cada línea y cada punto de la espuma de ese estallido de agua. Por otro lado, el trabajo de María Svarbova me apasiona. Me encantan la simetría, la quietud, los colores, y la distopía de su obra. Con estos dos referentes, pinté estos cuadros en principio solo para mí. Quería fusionar el ambiente y la luz de Svarbova con la fuerza de “A Bigger Splash”. En esta escena que imagino, la chica de la foto se ha zambullido, generando ese splash de espuma y puntitos que tanto me gusta. Mi trabajo en esta obra gira en torno a esa presencia tácita que agudiza el sentimiento de soledad.

"I paint so as not to get depressed, I look for recreate the sensations I feel underwater, as a way to reconstruct that place, sometimes of security and serenity, and others of vulnerability and loneliness. I compose my images with few elements to provide visual rest: a few colours and one or two figures, which are often the same character and her reflection or alter ego. I use photography as a starting point, most of the time images that I take myself. Before painting I like to study the proportion of the figure, I draw a grid that helps me place it on the support exactly in the place I want and I draw it quite detailed. Then I paint with acrylic, due to its fast drying, the strokes do not lose spontaneity." Ana Patitú was born in 1982, in Argentina. She is currently living in Barcelona.
