LUIS MIGUEL RICO
Luis Miguel Rico (1981, Toledo) creates works that are characterized by the movement of a wide, fluid brush, impregnated with oil and without texture. By tradition, the artist applies the movement of the brush horizontally, vertically and in different random directions on the surface of the paper or canvas. In his poetic words he states: “I load the brush with oil more or less diluted with turpentine, and from there I generate a repetition process where the gesture runs slowly but continuously, until the brush, due to its movement and direction, leaves the surface».
In short, Rico’s painting is markedly procedural with a tireless potential in terms of the concept or the narrative evoked. The sensuality of these abstractions can be used by the viewer to imagine different landscape scenarios. He uses painting as a tool to investigate and deepen knowledge, both in the creative process and in the observation process.
