Playing around the show windows, the exhibition consists on one single artwork with 122x330 cm occupping the full show window. It's a work where a snowy landscape is represented, including different geometric shapes. One of these forms is drawn in the glass of the show window.
A concept used by Francisco Nicolás after 2010, is the idea of showing the picture window. I use figurative elements, particularly the landscape. Above those figurative elements, I superimpose “abstracts” geometric shapes; sometimes it is seen in the landscape and simultaneosly in other spacial shape in front of the landscape, like if it was in an inner space and through a window we could see the outer space. That’s very close to Magritte’s art “Cuadros ventana”(“Windows-pictures”). Another concept is my interest in mixed opposite concepts, such figurative/abstract, classical/contemporary, paint reality/ photography/reality.
In this show the artist plays around the show windows. The exhibition consists on one single artwork with 122x330 cm occupping the full show window. It's a work where a snowy landscape is represented, mixing this landscape with different geometric shapes, playing with the opposite concepts of figurative versus abstract and creates different spatial planes within the same work. One of these shapes represented in the work can be seen drawn in the glass of the show window. This drawn shape is an identical copy of the one painted in the work. According to the vision and perspective theory, any object we look at it's represented in a visual plane. In the perspective system this is called "projection plane" and in this cases, the projection plane is the glass of the show window, making a "game" between reality and unreality.
