From the imagination, that not from the imaginary related to our tangible daily surrounding experiences, if not from a semi-conscious imagination of the archaic. An imagination that mutates in perceptible feelings from the metaphysical body, that through the consciousness from the learned, I could translate in words as infinite, eternity and fear.
As Pablo Palazuelo said years ago, through the production of imaginary forms persisting without physical substratum in our imaginative consciousness and going through the filter of the Mark Rothko’s spirituality, as something eternal and ulterior to our physical existence, I want to represent a feeling of infinitude that keeps repeating and persisting in my imaginative consciousness and metaphysical body. An expressed feeling that, when observed, calms my unavoidable feeling of anxiety and fear that faces a vast existence and, as Sean Scully said when talking about his Rothko Chapel at “Santa Cecilia de Montserrat” monastery, the anguishes got dispel to turn into feelings as relief and peace.
