FERNANDO MARTÍN GODOY. THE GHOST LOOK.
Artesantander. Palacio de Exposiciones y Congresos de Santander. Santander. July 2015.
Fernando Martín Godoy shows a painting project that plays with memory, fiction and the audience perception. La mirada fantasma (The ghost look) is a series of works that recreate moments in art history using apocryphal sources: pictorial representations of relevant people, interiors or situations, sourced from photographs extracted from a completely different context. The paintings display veiled elements and characters in such a way as to convey the memory of their presence in some hitherto unknown publication.
