Muxart. Contemporary Art and Creation Space

I need to live my paintings, working and reworking them, despite the risk of destroying them

The work room is the site of the creative process. Painting is not making a work but rather a way of life

Muxart’s process leads him to paint and repaint the same work, sometimes to the point of losing the original. Painting over paint, correcting the lines, repeating themes, shifting the colour palette, making and unmaking is a creative ritual that demystifies the finished product, the painting as an object, in favour of the work process. Painting is not making a work but fighting relentlessly with the colours to achieve a perfection that culminates the aesthetic experience.

The artist's studio, with originals placed on display, is the space of the creative process, the author’s private milieu where the energy of his work is condensed: painting and repainting, observing and correcting, seeing the whole together and never losing the expressive power of the images.

"Figures of Light", for example, appear and return at different times in the work as an iconic reference that gravitates in the emptiness of his studio. This one, spacious and bright, is a private space with traces marks on the wall, and if you look carefully, we can read, "EMOTIONAL AND CREATIVE BEAUTY." Perhaps it is a mantra that the artist chants while he works.
