THIS IS DE FOURTH SOLO PUCHE’S EXHIBITION IN 2018
The opening will be at the Merkur Gallery directed by Sabiha Kultulmuš.
The spanish artist José Luís Puche will show seven new works in what will be his fourth solo exhibition in 2018. The opening will be on the 1st of November in the Turkish Merkur Gallery and you can visit it until the 1st of December.
The exhibition entitled ‘The rivals of the sea’ consists of four works of large format 2x153cm and three medium pieces of 76x56cm. The technique used is oil charcoal and oil pastel on Saunders Waterford’s paper.
For Puche it is important that “the drawing is to be shown as an event and a setting where the passions are unleashed and an emotional, reflective and analytical maremagnum’.
The Spanish poet, Fray Luis de León, said that “words are missing to describe the feelings of the soul”. That amalgam of soul states such as passion, violence, tragedy or restlessness are shown as rivals of the sea. The sea itself is a great event.
The important of the music
Following the path of his latest exhibition at the Contemporary Art Center of Málaga, ‘The snow is dancing’, the artist continues to rely on music as a common thread since the pieces have been blow by blow and drop by drop.
The titles chosen for the pieces are cities with special relevance in classical music. One of the pieces ‘Shubertiade’ shows a gigantic wave that seems to gobble up a surfer, but what happens is that she is enjoying this fall between the sublime of the flight, and the violence of the fall itself. Therefore there is the complicity of the person with nature.
