‘On The Other Side’ solo exhibition, Barcelona

‘On The Other Side’ is my first solo exhibition in Barcelona.

This project presents a creative response to the need of understanding sensations and emotions, but also the essential aspects of life.

In the world in which we live, ‘On The Other Side’ is based on the idea of the existence of a complementary personal dimension that we go visiting. This space constitutes a refuge that, often, demonstrates itself as a simple distraction, sufficient to raise our feet off the land and escape. We can also come consciously to this dimension, in our search towards the comprehension of the reality that surrounds us.

Our relationship with this other side is a trip on which we embark from when we are born and that will take us our whole life; nonetheless, it is possible that we never get to understand the meaning of what waits for us. It is, therefore, a process of growth and knowledge of oneself, along which there will be revealed facets and essential aspects of our personality that we didn’t know and that, generally, remain secretly in the world that we all share.

All these considerations remain expressed through scenes impregnated with surrealistic dyes that portray women caught in themselves, frozen in specific instants of personal evasion.

The vibrant palette of color, the deliberated use of an unreal perspective – inspired by Pre-Renaissance paintings – and the expression of absence in the protagonists, emphasize the oneiric character of the project.
