This event has ended.

Javier Infantes understands creativity as a language of experimentation, as a method of investigation and as an acquisition of knowledge. He is interested in traveling into our inner selves, towards discovering what we are: thought, emotion, feeling, and memory.

“Perhaps we are what we remember…the recollections make us who we are,” he says.

The works presented in this exhibition are images that, from his personal point of view, “talk” about the landscape and architecture of human wishes and dreams. He likes for his works to get into all those places where our emotions and feelings are built and experienced and also where our memories are stored. Works that attempt to approximate the vast internal rich textures of which our recollections and longings are made. Resin in his paintings plays the role of storage. It is a metaphor for the transparent container that holds recollections and memories sometimes symbolized by rounded pieces of foam. Colors, shapes, and textures represent our emotions, feelings and memories that find themselves floating freely on the viscosity of the resin that finally manages to trap them and keep them intact and unchangeable forever.
