Oriol Texidor, ‘Immersió 176’, 2016, PontArte

Before words there was the silence.
The series of works 'immersions' tries to submerge in the universal integrity and invites to the quest for spiritual dimension of the human being.Symbolically, immersion means regression to pre-form, the reintegration to the undifferentiated mode of pre-existence.
All 'immersions' follow the same pattern: a human silhouette is cut in the center of the composition, static, hieratic, but instead of imposing itself ahead it does from the bottom of the scene and lets the paint surrounds it. The artist doesn't draw the human figure, just preserves it, thus manifesting itself through his absence and appears integrated into the original matter of the support of the work -we can say that it was already there before. Independent from what is happening around it, stops and contemplates.
