Weak Mirror at Groc Projects
21.12.2019 Guille Caivano
This show presents a collection of recent works, the paintings are hosted and surrounded by objects that where done specifically for the space.
The whole installation could be seen as a a self portrait of a painter and its habits, tools and obsessions.
As I see it, painting is a form of escapism from the world, but one that even though it gives the perfect excuse to be left alone engages with the world obliquely.
One paints the world, but a personal and therefore distorted reflection of it all, creating an unclear visual narrative, therefore the view- er has to complete a possible reading.
