El aspecto de estar siendo observado (The look of been looked at)

Valladolid From 10 March to 12 May 2018

Presentation
Ignacio Pérez-Jofre returns to La Gran with "The look of been looked at" three years after his exhibition "Escombro" [Rubbish] and his urban interventions in the city of Valladolid. If in his first project in the gallery he made a profound reflection on the what and the how of the painting from its support, in that case the support found, now, with a verse by TS Elliot ("...for the roses / Had the look of flowers that are looked at") alludes to the act of observation as increased and meticulous attention that achieves that an object ceases to be an object without more to become an observed object, thereby acquiring a character that prior to that reflective look lacked; a certain personification.

In this new collection of works from the series "Las cosas" he things], Pérez-Jofre reflects on his motivations to paint insistently the objects that accompany him day by day and that seem to pose for him "as a model for the photographer. Things are known to be observed and act accordingly. They take a pose, an attitude. (...) They are personified, animalized, transformed into other things. Tell stories or symbolize ideas. They are associated with experiences, they are records of past events or premonitions of future events. It's as if they were on a theatrical stage.”
