Researching recouvrement continues where works comprises a canvas cloaked in a thin or thick layer that obscures the painted surface below.
About The Artist
Between 2006 and 2013 Pablo orchestrated and realized his Defacing art project. Social performances with different communities took place in contemporary art centers in Miami and Paris where the public was invited to deface or erase paintings to create new memories and relations towards political icons. The objective was to force the collective to face demons and social stereotypes set about finding ways to sabotage the artworks, to undermine this notion of a singular context and a singular dialogue between art and the spectator.
About the Artworks
It is about surfaces, depths, thicknesses, vibrations, erasure and transparency. Through a juxtaposition of layers of pure pigments and for the sake of just thinning colors, his paintings veer to express the idea of an infinite and multiple universe. From canvas to canvas, we perceive his quest for purity and pictorial absoluteness. If he travels between figuration and abstraction, the goal is always the same: to touch the Ether. The Ether as a celestial space in the air of absolute purity, the Ether vibrating under the influence of a light source.
