Expo SYMBOLS, THE OBSESSION. Miró and Tàpies graphic work

From Thu. 17th to Sat. 19th Sept. / 10 am - 8 pm
Sun. 20th Sept. / 10 am - 3 pm

Symbols, the obsession Tàpies and Miró is an exhibition of graphic work by two great abstract artists.

In about twenty works, we will observe Miró’s obsession with women, his own universe that will create an unmistakable vocabulary of symbols and ideograms, creating a new pictorial space. A universe populated by its characters - archetypes - the woman, the star, the bird, the female sex. Miró's graphics acquire such a personal stamp that it is impossible not to identify them. 

Tàpies for the subject, the signs - crosses, numbers and letters. The artist's satisfaction with the signs, which he unconsciously created his own language. Sometimes meaningless, other times looking for inner motivations. The A as the limit beginning, the T as the stylization of the crucified, the beginning of his name, the cross meeting point of coordinates, the A and T union of his name and surname or that of his wife, will make us understand a balance expressive, a lyrical and evocative capacity that he transmitted with the contemplative solemnity that emanates his work.

Antoni Tàpies

Antoni Tàpies i Puig (Barcelona, 1923 - 2012), was a painter, sculptor and theorist of Spanish art. One of the main exponents of informalism worldwide, he is considered one of the most outstanding Spanish artists of the 20th century. The Catalan artist’s work has a study and conservation center at the Antoni Tàpies Foundation in Barcelona.

Joan Miró

Joan Miró i Ferrà (Barcelona, April 20, 1893-Palma de Mallorca, December 25, 1983) was a Spanish painter, sculptor, engraver, and potter, considered one of the greatest representatives of surrealism. In his works he reflected his interest in the subconscious, in the “childish” and in the culture and traditions of Catalonia.
