The work of Jordi Alcaraz (Calella, Barcelona, 1963) is the perfect confluence of form, poetic and concept. Using very diverse materials –methacrylate, ink, iron– he breaks, from the genre itself, the limits of painting, sculpture and engraving. From material evokes the idea not yet formulated, the aura of the object, he transforms and deforms reality, recreates it and thinks it with touch and hands. Heir to the Catalan artistic tradition of the last fifty years, Alcaraz’s work is related to Brossa’s irony and poetics, Tàpies’ material and Llena’s ethereal character. This exhibition at the Museum of Montserrat shakes the commonly accepted concept of painting and takes us into a reflection about the creative fact itself, identity and reality.
