Sunday 26, 3 PM. Jane and Paul
nerosunero’s works are like snapshots of everyday life’s moments represented through the mediums of both Digital Painting and New Mixed Media (mixing digital & traditional painting with photography and free hand drawing). They might appear like meaningless moments, and the artist is far from attaching to them any more meaning that the one each us can see in them. The choice of the moment itself and the choice of depicting or not the background are artistic and aesthetic choices, while still unconscious and instinctive.
The couple depicted here captured the artist’s attention. Like a game we all do, the mind wonders imagining strangers’ lives, relationships, feelings. Are they like us? Do they have better or worse lives and possibilities, we ask ourselves, while unexpectedly pondering also about our own lives.
What has drawn the artist to them and not another couple? Colours, proportions, light, composition. The artist communicates and reads via an aesthetic language which does not require being translated into words or codes. His connection with a subtler reality allows him to capture the moment, so that the representation of that moment, crystallized through the artistic medium, speaks to all of us. And because there are no explanation, no words, the image speaks to each of us with a unique voice, specific, personal, and universal at the same time. As the artist puts it: “the image seems already to have everything you need within it.” Like a mirror, we look at nerosunero’s work and we can see a reflection of the world and of ourselves.
