PABLO CASTAÑEDA SANTANA

My work challenges the boundaries within presentation and representation, by creating layers of acrylic paint in which the represented pictorial interpretations of the digital media can be physically contorted by bending the surface, highlighting the existing tension between the actual and the illusory space. That means to re-embody the ephemeral digitalized images through an unconventional use of paint that triggers a re-evaluation of the most common particularities of the discipline, such as the support and the texture. The process consists of painting an inverted image on glass and, once the film gets enough thickness, it is peeled off.
