La memoria de narciso, 2017 by James Bonachea
From The Series The memory of narcissus
Watercolor on cardboard
Image size: 100 cm H x 70 cm W
This series of works stems from the reflection on the value attributed to objects (metals and precious stones), established culturally and historically by society. By means of the two-dimensional representation where the artist creates a series of works that dialogue ironically with the concept of value, understood by the added content, I represent scenes and objects
that are directly related to the idea of exchange and judgment fundamentally using a chromatic range that is associated with said judgment (gray graphite as a physical component of the diamond in another density, gold, silver, and bronze as metals representing different scales of value), combining such materials by its chromatic symbolic quality.
The artist use the technique of watercolor on cardboard and graphite on canvas as a medium essential for the realization of this project.
The work of James Bonachea (Cuba, 1977) has been characterized as a constant invitation to re-signify both the beliefs rooted in the cultural imagination, as easily as the objects of everyday use. This practice has led him to the intervention of public and private spaces involving both his own body, as well as organic materials and other elements in settings and surfaces, apparently contradictory, within the formal solutions of visual and pictorial discourses. From performance to drawing, his curiosity for rereading the remote past has directed him to establish dialogues between the historical vision and the current condition of reality, resulting in discursive forms that complement an anachronistic universe of resignifications.
