Juan Medina, 1950 | Hyperrealist / Surrealist painter

Mexican painter Juan Medina was born in Mexico City. In the beginning it was shape, then came light, afterwards color and finally texture; as in the architectonic creation, the genesis of Juan Medina’s pictorial work rests on a solid structure of techniques and concepts that weave in plastic dimensions his memories made of oil and canvas.
With time, the step from watercolor to oil was the resource that allowed him to approach with mastery the conscience of time encrusted in stone, wood, mirrors and all model object that transfers Renaissance rhetoric without moralizing it.

Paul Gauguin: Innanzi tutto, l'emozione!

Nel nuovo stile di Paul Gauguin, il cloisonnisme o sintetismo, il colore si chiude in zone, così che la scena si presenta in superficie e si annulla ogni rapporto tra spazio e volumi. A proposito dell'uso delle ombre, nel 1888, Gauguin scriveva a Émile Bernard:
«Guardate i giapponesi, che pure dipingono in modo ammirevole e vedrete una vita all'aria aperta e al sole, senza ombre. Usano i colori solo come combinazione di toni, di armonie diverse [...] voglio staccarmi quanto più è possibile da qualsiasi cosa che dia l'illusione di un oggetto, e poiché le ombre sono il trompe-l'oeil del sole, sono propenso ad eliminarle. Ma se una sfumatura entra nella composizione come forma necessaria, allora è diverso. Così, mettete pure delle ombre, se le giudicate utili, oppure non le mettete: è la stessa cosa, se non siete schiavi dell'ombra. È piuttosto questa che deve essere al vostro servizio».
