The artist presents a fine tribute to the intimate links between memory and identity, between desire and guilt, but also a reference to the contrast between wild and restrained, between old and new.
A catalogue of today’s human condition with a clear reference to the supposed grandeur of the past in contrast with the new tendencies.
Miguel Rózpide's visual approach lies in a place where the difference between environment and subject is defined. His images pay particular attention to what happens there, they enrich the ordinary and undoubtedly evoke an atmosphere, whether warm or sterile. There are places, objects, people or animals, and colours that envelop them. The palette is restricted, sometimes even sombre, and the images are realistic whilst flirting with abstraction. In Rózpide's work—as in the colour field painting movement—colour is freed from its figurative functions and invites itself into the frame as a subject.
