what to do, where to go, how to enjoy the most beautiful countries in Europe
There is an existing space between photography and art. It’s almost 10 years I am addicted to my photo camera. I never though I was so good to show them in a public space, but I love photography, I have a good sense for esthetic and, as John Keats, I really believe that beauty is truth; and beauty is not necessarily something figurative. Beauty is a sensation, a feeling, that deeply takes you… just like love. That’s the reason why I love abstract paintings, the American expressionism and everything I can’t clearly see, but deeply feel. So, I was looking for a good event in a small city such as Cádiz is, where Culture is not really a must, but more a “maybe”. I mean, we are not in New York, nor in Rome or in London. So, this town can be quite boring sometimes. Especially in a period of crisis like the one we are living.
But I found it.
(I’m really proud of that).
It’s like a month I know about this exhibition, and I was getting nervous and excited. But today is the day.
Carmelo Trenado Tormo will show his photography in the Main Hall of the Castle of Santa Catalina today at 8PM. I don’t know him, but I followed his work as a painter, and I think he’s a really good artist. Sometimes I surf in his webpage to see if there is something new and almost always I receive good surprises. So, when they told me he will go to Cádiz, I thought it was great…
But he comes here with his photography collection, not with his paintings.
That can be interesting.
The passage from the three-dimensionality of the abstract painting, from the oil, the materials to a two-dimensional support like photography is a curious choice. As I told before, there is a space between art and photography: normally, a painting goes into you, you can feel it inside; on the contrary, when you see a photo, it’s you that go into it, so you can feel it outside, surrounding you. I don’t know if I express it well…
However, the exhibition will be interesting. If you are around Cádiz, don’t miss it.
“La imágen sustentada” (The nourish image) is the title. Quite suggestive, too…
