Fernando Almela

"Ausencias y presencias"

Daniel A. Verdú Schumann

"Ausencias y Presencias", was a selection of works by Fernando Almela that revolved around the still life, a subject little treated by contemporary artists. This exhibition of paintings and small sculptures showed two essential elements in all classical painting: colour and composition. "In my paintings the background becomes a figure, not only physically - the preparation of the canvas is left in this unpainted area - but visually. The whites are the figure of the painting; on the other hand, the visual background of my paintings is what is intervened, what has physical matter, painting, "the artist explained in one of his writings. In the catalogue published for the occasion, written by Daniel Verdú Schumann (art critic and professor at the Carlos III University of Madrid), manuscripts of the artist were rescued, thanks to the Amela-Solsona Foundation and its director Isabel Urueña.
