Ballast

Oil on canvas
72 x 90 in. / 182.9 x 228.6 cm

In this new body of work referencing the traditional still-life painting, combinations
of patterns found in domestic clutter and material accumulation serve as conceptual and graphic structures. As he chooses to paint multiple points of view of a single object, an ordinary pile of clothes turns into something resembling sculptural
monuments. The artist starts by creating different paintings of the same subject, with different formal approaches, which he cuts into strips and reorganizes in order to recreate the original version of the image represented.

The size of the horizontal bands, wide or narrow, indicates different moments of perception: the wider the band, the closer the view. Ballast focuses on pictorial languages and how such languages can question the personal experience of time and of domestic life.
