José Luis Albelda

Las Germinaciones del Agua

Jose Albelda (1963, Valencia. Lives and works in Valencia) surprises on this occasion with a delicate exhibition where watercolor and gold leaf put the focus on that which goes so unnoticed: the wild nature and its germinations in the water. Combining the idea that painting does not immortalize, but revives the past, together with the fact that water is a source of life and creation, Albelda presents a series of pieces that recreate that wild nature so typical of some of the richest natural landscapes of our country. All these paintings are exhibited in parallel to a series of reflections by the artist drawn with elegant calligraphy on the white walls of the Ana Serratosa Gallery. These phrases, together with the watercolors, make us question the role of nature in today's world, while at the same time immersing us in the artist's creative process.

Las Germinaciones del Agua

by Jose Albelda

In the past, painting has been used in different ways to bring to life or maintain the memory of what happened at the time. It has made it possible to relive the great historical deeds through their spectacular representation, but it has also immortalized the characters of the people with the same skill with which kings and popes were painted; Duero, for example, took the same care in painting herbs and small animals as he did in his Adam and Eve.

The task of painting is not to freeze what is alive, but rather to vivify the past or what is happening at that moment, prolonging its existence. That is why, when we speak of painting, we refer to a profoundly vital art.
