Paperback writer, 2022, Painting (Mixed media on paper mounted on moleskine), 20 x 30 cm
 

Federico Granell's painting reveals the narrative and experiential nature of the journey, as a distancing from routine and the everyday, as a discovery of new places and different ways of life, but also as a journey inwards, towards the encounter with oneself. In his works, a light sifted by memory, like a photograph faded by the passage of time, transports us to those places recorded in a diffuse way in his memory.

Graduated in Fine Arts from the University of Salamanca in 1999, specialising in Design and Audiovisuals, and later trained in Milan and Rome, Federico Granell began his career more than a decade ago. An outstanding artist on the national art scene, he has held numerous exhibitions in renowned Spanish, European and South American art galleries, has been awarded important prizes and his works can be found in prestigious collections such as the Asturias Fine Arts Museum, the Asturias Regional Government and the DKV Collection.

Rafael Blanco takes as a starting point for the creation of his works the observation of the nearby landscape and the changes produced by new technologies in agriculture, where rhythms reach geometric levels of arrangement in order to minimise production costs and labour.

Heart, 2021, Sculpture (Ceramic), 35 x 18 x 38 cm

 

Pablo represents in his works how a small adult or a big child looks at the world from the point of view of emotions. Black ink predominates in his drawings and he talks about love and things that hurt. In his work we find planets, hugs, teepees, naked bodies, tattoos, vegetation, animals... a whole universe that Little uses to deal with the themes that interest him: love and heartbreak, farewells and reunions, the earthly and the magic, the extraordinary...

He experiments by playing with textures, materials and volumes, finding in everyday materials the channel to configure his artistic argument. In this way, his re-signified elements, elevated to the category of art, make us participants in and aware of our surroundings.

Selfie 9, 2020, Photograph (Polyester photographic paper and pigment ink residues), 30 x 22 cm

 

It represents liquid images that refer to the origin and illustrate the present. Photographs that, like mountains, have gone from the solid, immutable, static, monumental, chalky or dusty to the liquid, fluid, mobile, dynamic, fragmentary and fleeting. A reflection on the concept of No-photography or liquid photography in the digital era and on the relationship between the image and the textual, which underlines the strong feedback between the structures of image production and the dominant forms of subjectivity in neoliberal culture.
