Madrid - Spain

Ataraxia & Street Museum

Madrid From 13 April to 18 June 2018

Presentation
Ataraxia is the absence of embarrassment. A state of serenity and tranquility. An order of equilibrium without disturbance in correspondence with reason, feelings and soul. In a society like ours, we are exposed to an infinity of external and internal conditions that undermine any hint of moderation and harmony. The fragile and ephemeral of existence, the fears and threats, the loss of values. Our selfishness. The cravings for power, wealth and superficiality. The lies of politics and the desire for social positioning. Our immense stupidity. They irrevocably separate us from the control of our passions and desires, make us weak and unable to be happy.

José Manuel Ciria (Manchester, 1960). In regards to Ciria's work, the influential American art critic Donald Kuspit said, “I would venture to say that José Manuel Ciria is a great painter. And by that I mean that he has complete command of his medium and his tools; the painting and the modernist vocabulary of abstraction, both the gestural and the geometric (...). We can clearly see a strong element of fantasy in Ciria's paintings, as his figures show: We could perhaps call him… an abstract illusionist?, in the sense that he creates fantastic figures out of abstract elements, which are usually gestural planes that appear to be in constant movement, suggesting a figure in the middle of a metamorphic process.
