Life under Aitana’s peak

30 Nov

These are some of the magic woods inside the province of Alicante, where my inspiration comes from:

landscape, dusty spring

La Sierra del Carrascal. The dark green color reminds me to the cypresses, always pointing to the sky as showing a way to scape. This wood has a kind of druid spirit as well, dry and hard, but foggy and humid in the inside.

Behind the top (El Puig)

28 Jul

There is always a high mountain to climb. Enormous, single, powerful… almost unreacheable. I try to foul my mind and see already “behind the top”. What wonderful view is waiting for me? With which new perspective I will see the world?

Red Pump

28 Jul

Red Pump, 2010. 60 x 55 cm. Acrylic on canvas.

If I had to define this picture, I will say that is a visual haiku. As for me it shares some of its characteristics. As A.C. Missias defines it a haiku is “a poetry marked by brevity, reality, nature/seasonality, a moment’s duration, and insight or intuition”.

It shares as well the most usual shape for haikus:

“This bell curve (See Highly Technical Figure I) can be seen as a distribution of haiku along an axis of, say, objective <——–> subjective, and most haiku will tend to group in the center. There are some poems that are far more subjective than the haiku norm, and others than the haiku norm, and others that are far more objective, but the bulk, the haiku most typical of the genre, can be expected to array themselves toward the middle of the curve.”

For me, the picture Red Pump is a haiku in the way its meaning is structured and in its visual structure.
