The Matiz Gallery in Barcelona presents the new art exhibition by Jordi Artigas, titled "Contrastes"

In his quest for balance, Jordi Artigas presents a series that is paradoxically harmonious and disruptive. Each canvas becomes a platform for intentional contrasts, a dialogue between order and spontaneity. The artist's chosen medium is a blend of coffee, glue, and water on canvases featuring persistent blank spaces or a natural linen background.

Artigas's meticulous process involves intentional grooves and the unpredictable dance of water and coffee, resulting in unique backgrounds. After days of drying, the artist carefully observes each piece before introducing color. The composition, often balanced with two or three colors, occasionally ventures into the contrasting realms of earthy coffee textures juxtaposed with vibrant and fluorescent tones, creating a nuanced chromatic spectrum.

Artistic Philosophy

Artigas expresses that his work, essentially, does not seek to convey a specific message nor draw inspiration from anyone in particular. Rather, it thrives on the interaction between balance and disorder, matte and fluorescent hues, conveying both calmness and chaos. The artist invites the viewer to find their interpretation, fostering an exploration beyond predefined notions.
The essence of CONTRASTES lies in the inherent duality of Artigas's creations: an orchestrated balance disrupted by spontaneity and intuition, a visual dance between order and chaos.
