JAVIER INFANTES

ACERCA DE JAVIER

Artista esteponero con gran versatilidad: Pinturas, obra digital, delicadas técnicas mixtas y dibujos, algunos de ellos ya publicados en prensa.
La obra de Javier pertenece al arte más trascendente. Realiza una profunda labor de síntesis hasta llegar al concepto puro, investiga acerca de las esencias de los pensamientos más profundos, rastrea en los planteamientos filosóficos de la existencia, desde la autenticidad de una búsqueda infinita e insondable. A la hora de la plasmación práctica, se permite jugar con diversas técnicas, aplicadas sobre tabla o lienzo, bien en trabajos de adscripción informalista muy personal, en las que predomina lo matérico (“Interior y Oro” e “Implosión”), junto a sugerentes piezas de fondo negro, a las que el autor llama “fragmentos-recuerdo” dentro del “Paisaje de la Memoria”, o bien obras racionalistas como los dos pequeños dípticos de juegos geométricos de la serie “Laberinto”.
