Paco Pomet Artwork Details


Detailed Description

Pomet uses thick brushstrokes and an Expressionist technique in which color sheds its ornamental function to take on a symbolic meaning in contrived narrative scenes that simultaneously imitate and falsify reality. The Andalusian artist places the “realest” elements in the center of his canvases and relegates the implausible ones to a secondary plane, but this in no way detracts from their importance; indeed, in every case they invariably determine the message of his paintings. The artist’s work, which has won distinctions at the La Rioja Parliament Competition, the Zamora Biennial, the Autumn Salon in Plasencia and the Ángel Awards, was recently exhibited in Cartagena and New York. Pomet, who represented Spain at the Contemporary Art Biennial of Le Havre in 2008, will participate in the Beijing International Art Biennale to be held at the National Museum of China in September-October of this year.
