Ignatius

Artexpo Art Fair – New York

October 28 - October 31, 2021

Reception: Thursday, October 28, 2021, 6-8 PM

A Spanish painter from Madrid, Ignatius sees his paintings as a means of expressive communication, and with each piece he paints to break the monotony of the two-dimensional world. Ignatius grew up in Madrid under his mathematician father who was also a painter. As a young boy his father introduced him to Spanish Informalism or Abstract Expressionism and, since then Ignatius has thought of and seen art in this way.

In his latest series “Colors of the Waves,” the artist explores the reality of our universe from the viewpoint of quantum physics, which posits that all living beings on this Earth are no more than subatomic energy particles all connected together, with different and complex systems, capabilities, skills, and characteristics. We all inhabit an electromagnetic field filled with a wonderful and chaotic amalgam of various electromagnetic waves. Ignatius’ artwork reveals this hidden, yet palpable network of radiation; a fascinating landscape of gamma rays, visible light, radio and ultraviolet waves, x-rays, microwaves, and infrared waves. His belief is that only colors are able to reveal all these different shapes to the human eye. Without colors, the world would look like a huge “sand storm” in the middle of the desert. The underlying axiom of his oeuvre is that separation is a mere illusion and we are all part of the same whole. In this age of “Internet dictatorship,” when reality has been replaced by images, Ignatius’ three-dimensional paintings offer an all-round immersive experience for the viewer. His work is not a mere representation of reality, it is reality itself.

Ignatius will hold a live painting performance on Saturday, October 30th, 3 p.m., at Artexpo New York, Agora Gallery's booth no. 101, which is located at Pier 36, 299 South Street, New York, NY 10002.
