Art Madrid'23 – Patrik Grijalvo
Patrick Grijalvo has found a way to shore up the autonomy of his images, weakening his link with the real referent - without losing it - and claiming his status as an object. In his hands become sculptures: pieces of a delicate and subtle volume, achieved by a serene composition of planes. The result, far from being capricious or redundant, conveys a harmonious sense of need. The artist does not impose any three-dimensional shape on the images, at his whim, but he builds it from the attributes of the photographic surface. One of the peculiarities of photography is the approach, which forces us to discriminate zones of variable sharpness and, therefore, to mark the different planes of depth.
