Art Madrid'24 – Luis Miguel Rico – 005 (2023)
about Luis Miguel Rico
My workshop is full of materials that are familiar to all of us for their use in the field of Fine Arts, among which I highlight papers that I dye beforehand for their subsequent manipulation. All of them, randomly presented on my work table, add to my problem of composition, which I try to solve directly on the support of the work. In the act of composing, for me it is essential that those materials I use and arrange on the surface, connect and come to have a unitary sense, giving rise in turn during the creative process to the non-renunciation of my work as a playful way for the creation and production of my works.
Parallel to my collage work, I present a series of works where I use exclusively the medium of painting. With them, I generate a series of forms, which maintain a certain link with my collage structures. I use stains of broken colors and other more saturated colors where the density of the paint itself, more or less liquid, also plays an important role. "
