about the artist's works

Xurxo Gómez-Chao's trajectory highlights an evolution from his beginnings in painting to his latest works in which photography has become his fundamental means of expression. It uses elements that it finds mainly in its daily reality to create new and independent work, of an intimate nature, in which nature usually acquires a leading role. Gómez-Chao's work can be defined as multidisciplinary, as it combines photography with other media such as painting, ceramics or video. The duality between the rational and the visceral as well as between the material and the oneiric is also an inherent characteristic of its creative universe, as well as its multiple references to classical culture and art history.
