The light of some cracks in the blinds at various hours and days offered Àlvar changing geometric images, full of suggestions. They were images related to his recent work of repetitive and abstract paintings based on grids, lines or spellings. Who has not ever been happy with the reflections of light from a nearly closed blind during convalescence or a day of solitude and introspection? It is with time, patience and seclusion that someone can make the point to where the photos have come out of Los & Lux and the paint that surrounds them.
Acceleration of the eye when it captures light using the photographic technique, slowing the painting process where it is located, “hemmed”, photo printing. Both are on opposite relation, therefore complementary.
