The ‘Mirrors’ Ramón Lez project located in his hometown after traveling through other venues such as the Circulo de Arte in Toledo, Sala Algorfa in Cierza, and his major work, the canvas entitled ‘Mirrors’, exposed last November in Monaco for UNESCO.
Modified to suit each exhibition space, ‘Mirrors’ becomes an exclusive project to be shown in Room 1 of the FCP, composed of paintings, drawings, sculptures and video arts involving the viewer in a lyrical and evocative atmosphere.
Based on his previous project, ‘Narayama el ciclo de la mariposa’, in ‘Mirrors’ the artist preserves his fascination for concepts such as beauty and perfection, or life or death, not to mention other discursive axes pertaining to his work such as nature and human being.
The exhibition Mirrors, talks of looks that observe themselves, looks that are introspective and contained at once, as mirrors should address, where the viewers presences is part of a game of surfaces and reflection that we observe ourselves.
In this project the undeniable treatment of cinema by Ramón Lez is applied to portraits, painted faces or scenes containing elements that make us reflect on ourselves and fill us with mysterious emotions. The show aims to reflect the magnificence of nature through abstract contemplations of fluid and fleeting images, scenes for reflection on the very existence of humanity, the history and modernity through birth and death, transformation, catharsis, which gives origin to another identity/reality. In the artist words, "In some portraits apparently simple, distressed or beautiful, constitute reflections about perception and photography though my way of working. Preparing manicured scenery where the images are situated as a protagonist and then I turn to digital technology to manipulate the final product, creating an environment with my own language”. The intervention in the room becomes an architectural interior in a kind of magical mirror. Also pretending to make the viewer participate by interacting with their own ‘image found’ unexpectedly in an attempt to provoke introspecting fleets through the mirrors placed in the room.
Ramón Lez counts on an international trajectory, having worked in places like Germany, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, France, China, and the United States, now presents this exhibitions in the Casa Pintada Foundation - Cristóbal Gabarrón Museum in Mula, where it could be seen until March 2, 2014
