Watercolor on paper
For Ignacio Pérez-Jofre (Madrid, 1965) painting by observing the subject directly is like a performance. And also an action of resistance in the world of social networks, instant messaging and post-photography. He considers that looking at a stone, a tree or a glass of water is a political stance. An act of subversion. That is why his work as an artist is focused on observation, description and reflection on the visible, seeking to be very concrete.
Objects, people and places in his immediate environment become a constant source of attention, contemplation and study. This direct observation of fragments of reality and its translation into a pictorial or drawing medium encourages him to paint from nature frequently, which emphasizes the importance of proximity and the experience of the specific space and moment.
