One and also two …more
2019, 80 x 100 cm, Acrylic and oil painting on linen (framed)
When observing M argaux's work there are two elements that are deeply linked: human psychology, as a result of the artist's fascination with the work of psychologist Elizabeth Loftus on human cognition, and on the other hand, the pathos or profound expression of the feelings we observe in Italian Renaissance artists.
In "One and also two… more" it is remarkable the impression of the essence of what a memory is: a dream y and vague sensation where details are lost in the consciousness of the intellect. Memories as well as dreams leave us inaccurate perceptions about a reality that we cannot assure; how many people were in a certain room? what were their reactions? ... All these perceptions are reflected in Margaux's work through blurred colors and ephemeral shadows that are lost in oblivion, leaving as the only testimony, the emotion or feeling that shook the soul. On the other hand, the work "The Pieta and the Fantastic" delves more into sadness and the contemporary adaptation of classic works of religious iconography. Reflecting feelings without drawing defined lines on the faces of the characters but that the viewer is able to capture.
