This title alludes to the concept of the word contexture as the way in which the parts of a whole are arranged and which is perceived by sight and touch. The weft-like finish, which the strips of paper draw three-dimensionally, is evidence of a vibrant play of visual textures, which could refer directly to the title, composed of parts con and textura. That is to say, on the one hand, broad geometric structures composed of the union of its parts, background and object, and on the other, visual and tactile texture inherent to the formula of manual tearing of the paper and its arrangement in relief on the canvas of the support.
This double reference to the word of the title appears in practically all my work throughout my artistic career, but in this exhibition some works stand out as novelties which, due to the alternating placement of strips of black and white paper, cause a special vibration in the spectator´s eye. This occurs because of the succession of black and white in thin parallel horizontal lines; an old rule of visual composition, contrast, according to which two forms of opposite nature together enhance their value and intensify their communication. In this way, contrast as a visual strategy sharpens the meaning not only by attracting the viewer’s attention but also by being able to dramatise its meaning in order to make it more important and dynamic.
