PERSISTENCE OF THE PAINTING
Since the actual panorama of the plastic and visual arts with the painting and their contemporary expression, in years of well maturation, the pictorial action has won their own territory, the same that right now governs, as a return to the roots, to the encounter of a primordial practice of the hand and body following the controlled gesture. The “mimesis” of the contemporary painting, can to view a complex ecosystem that moves beyond the representation among a "model purchased", toward the deconstruction, fragmentation, abstraction and formal synthesis, perceived like a real emanation, something like a single presence of the gestural and instinctive, always open and endless.
Persistence of the Painting recreates our pictorial practice which constitutes a particular experience at the expedition inside of their territories and that has been developed, improved and delimited by two great frontier zones, between the academic values and their theoretical and technical precepts, and the personal intention, where have been distorted, twisted, kneaded, removed from their conventional methods, opened a way inside the individual vision on events of the man and the cosmos, revealing the secret meanings of the mysterious existence of the human being. The enigmatic place that produces the painting, as an emanation in continuous flow, is the same where we tries to pick up a tenue signal in the enclosure of “the ten thousand forms”, always ephemerals, changeables and eternals, manifesting the vital rhythm of our nature. Once achieved this empathy, we want to capture the vital movements of the own spirit through the vital rhythms of the cosmos.
Such persistence in the creative act of painting, right here, within the phenomenon propitiated by the plastic action inside the support, is where appears all our constructions that has been materialized among search and encounter, when the frame of mind variations have alternated between the observation, the introspection and the action, when their interest has been focused on the nature of the human being and their own mind.
