The ceremony of the incomplete II

Javier Ruiz

For Javier Ruíz Pérez, this identity has taken different paths, such as urban art or figuration in the strictest sense. Now, this vision of the world comes to us with nuances, like a subtle renunciation of detail in favour of an expressive brushstroke committed to everyday life.

Let us say that Javier’s approach to reality is similar to the idea of the hermeneutic circle, of apprehending the totality from a detail that we understand thanks to that same totality. It is the small everyday traits and attitudes of his characters that mark the dialogue with a whole that, at first glance, might seem alien to us.
