DAMIÁN FLORES. LIGHT OF MEMORY.
Galery Alejando Sales. Barcelona. June 2015.
Damian Flores arrives with an eye toward the fifties without sacrificing any of the two sides of his imagination: on the one hand, the architecture -look factory chimneys, penetrating and abstract texture, train stations and coffee shops-; secondly, the personal tribute to his closest artistic references. And there, in the Barcelona dream, we also find the impersonal atmosphere of some pedestrians often hurried, as if life were that: a flow between disappointment and astonishment; but more the latter than the former. Nor can we neglect the key melancholy painter acts as a continuous low, as an infinite melody to open a space for the eyes. The key to this painting lies not only in the eyes or on the formalities of technical skill, but on that watchtower from which one contemplates the carnality of the world.
