Simulacrum is Anthony Goicolea’s second solo exhibition at Galeria Senda. Known for his versatile profile, this artist focuses on a wide spectrum of medium in his creation that range from digitally manipulated landscapes to paintings that reflect beautiful bodylines. He is inspired by the interaction with nature and themes about identity and migration. The artist fully immerses himself into his work to demonstrate the good and evil, capturing both what is beautiful and what is intensely grotesque, -things that can attract and repulse.
By mastering the techniques of graphite and oil in his recent series Anonymous Portraits, dedicated to the human body, the artist depicts it, representing its gestures and lines in movement. On the other hand, his landscapes range from dream-like woodland environments to vast urban and industrial wastelands. The use of Mylar paper, a semi-translucent material, allows Goicolea to play with layers of shades and paint for both the creation of colourful landscapes and the exploration of gracious delicate movements.
