Untitled, 2010

Collage with etching on 270grm white BFK Rives paper

Edition of 40, signed and numbered

56 x 36cm

Printed by Joan Roma, Barcelona

    This etching forms a natural continuation of Garcia Sevilla's Moll series which he began in 2008, comprising laboriously worked layers of superimposed minute dots, suspended in time and motion, whilst seeming to disintegrate before our very eyes. His work contains allusions to vastness, and an understanding that beauty can be liberating, lively and unpredictable. On commenting upon this limited edition print, the artist says "the etching is a whole of different colours dots in a concrete shape. I do images because I can't explain with words!".

    BIOGRAPHY

    Spanish painter Ferran Garcia Sevilla is a collector of images. His eclectic pictorial style draws on his travels in the Middle East, and on comic books, urban graffiti, philosophy and Eastern cultures, resulting in great sensuous open spaces in which everything blends together, both in terms of iconography and ideas. His raw, colourful, primitive canvases are often peppered with caustic, hand-scrawled commentaries on life and politics. These paintings display the use of automatism, playfulness and flat symbols, and figures floating over solid ground. Turning to ancient and non-Western sources, he has long employed religious symbols - the hand, circle, tree, triangle and cross. His aim is to empower and also challenge these charged forms, not to trivialise them.

    Born in Palma de Mallorca in 1949, Ferran Garcia Sevilla lives and works in Barcelona. Major international exhibitions include Foundation Cartier, Paris, 1997; IVAM, Valencia, 1998; Malmo Konsthall, 1998; Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Renia Sofía, Madrid, 2001; and more recently exhibitions at Galería Joan Prats, Barcelona, 2007, and Galería Fúcares, Madrid, 2008
