Semiborrados (2013)

TECNIC Solvent, and acrylic paint on canvas vinyl print.

Once printed on vinyl —a material chosen for its durability and for its relationship with the artist’s discourse— the paintings are manually treated with solvent.

This new attempt at erasure, now analog, blurs the inflexibility of the computer processes that have worm away at the images and adds another trace, that of the painter, with acrylic brushstrokes on the print. A real palette now overlaps and contrasts with the virtual colours.

In one way, this process synthesises the problematic which Radigales faced after having studied Painting and then Interactive Systems and it is also one of the greatest dilemmas contemporary man must face in his relationship with the physical and the technological world.
