JOSÉ GUERRERO. BRG
The new series by José Guerrero, entitled BRG (2020-2021) draws its inspiration directly from Luis Barragán’s architecture and is also linked in a certain way to Italian metaphysical painting. As on previous occasions, Guerrero addresses ideas that transcend the nature of photography, even though this time he is -or seems to be- far from his classic landscapes to get closer to pictorial abstraction. All of this, through the conscious and decisive use of perspective and composition, colour and atmosphere. Working with miniature architectural models, and the necessary pre- and post-production it entails, allows the artist to dwell on fundamental interrogations already present in his previous work: problems concerning the frontier between reality and its representation; the image and our perception of it; the documentary and abstract aspects of photography; the limits between photography and painting.
