PAINTINGS AND DRAWINGS. Agustí Roca
PAINTINGS AND DRAWINGS. Acrylic/ink on paper. Different sizes.
Double figurative series: acrylic paintings and ink drawings on paper that portray different invented topics.
Some spots and initial color or black ink splashes, purely random applied, have suggested shapes or compositions to the artist’s imagination, which then he had tried to set plastically. It is an intuitive working method making use of chance to evoke and bring to light images or ideas that may already existed without form in the author’s mind.
Some of these works could be used as illustrations, and indeed all of them are more or less narrative, but both their original dimensions as well as the glossy effect of the ink and the acrylic paint on the coated paper that is the usually employed support, without a doubt bring them closer to painting art.
