The gesture as a speech and the scene as support for the gesture are circumstances studied in the
work of the Sevillian painter Armando Seijo (1971). The everyday assumes a spontaneous posture recreated by the combination of colors, the thick brushstroke and the characters represented.
With the stylistic influence of European avant-garde of the 20th century, specifically, figurative expressionism, Seijo invites the viewer to a "casual" conversation.
His landscapes seem melancholic, temperamental but gentle portraits of nature. Between general planes, curved angles and horizontal perspective, hills, mountains and floral elements reach a vertical magnitude of romantic permanence. Fluid dialogue inhabits Seijo's works between photographic aesthetics and pictorial composition. He recreates, in usual scenes, characters that denote action and dynamism: two women talking in the interior (domestic) of a space, musicians playing in bars and other scenarios like a boxing club. Although the structure of the work has an expressionist technique, the represented moment arises from the relationship between the real and the intimate imaginary.
The enjoyment of the visual proposal is not determined exclusively by the understanding of the
speech. The sentimental explores the urban context and the narrative as elements circumstantial to the human being. The artist, without primary intention, offers a set design that allows you to invent stories like the following: sitting on the sofa in the living room, two friends talk about his most recent trips to southern Spain and the city of London.
