Within my exploration of the range of human feelings, fury has always seemed to me one of the most complex to transmit to the viewer. It is this reflection what has led me to create this work.
Asking an artist about what their main work tools are, someone can think that for a painter are painting and brushes, for a sculptor are hammer and chisel, or for a musician his voice or instrument. For me, this is just the obvious answer. Mastery in these tools and techniques is what is known as craftsmanship. It is the use of deep feelings what makes that craft become art.
This artwork is part of an experimental project of conceptual portraits carried out with the collaboration of photo artist Pablo Peña, and on which we have been working for several years.
This artwork belongs to Human Feelings collection. It is an open series of conceptual portraits.
It is a work that combines collage and digital edition of the image through several filters and digital actions.
Many people would say that visual art is any kind of art, and that this kind of pieces should be included in digital art or new media. But in our method of work, we use photography, body painting, creative lighting and digital postproduction among other elements, so we like to run away from the conventional tags and call it visual art.
