Reproduction in Textile Art endows Fuegos with diverse qualities.
Fuegos II is a small-scale reproduction of a painting by Joan Miró. He made it in 1974 inspired by the summer solstice.
Miró made an abundant pictorial and sculptural work, as well as engravings and ceramics. He is one of the great artists of the 20th century representing surrealism and expressionism.
Miró’s works reflect his interest in the subconscious, the world of children and the culture and traditions of Catalonia. Likewise, the link with the earth and the interest in everyday objects and nature will be the background of some of his research.
Fireworks triptychs are acrylic paintings on canvas. Fireworks II measures 292 x 195 cm and they are one of Miró’s works that have inspired me the most due to the simplicity and vitality they convey. They talk about: celebration, color, movement, and play.
Joan Miró does not go unnoticed. True to his vocation and his creative spirit, his influence is indisputable and his invaluable contribution.
In textile art reproduction the movement of the threads is real, the stitches show the lines. The contrast of color in the burlap fabric reminds us of Miró’s origins and love of rural life and nature.
These reproductions are part of my search for ancestors. I go after the creators of the works that influence me. Admiring the work of other artists, it is possible to connect with their historical moments and also by their own influences.
Like SOTO, who belonged to the artistic movements of Paris, Miró is part of the European artistic avant-garde of the 20th century. He explains in his works events such as the Spanish Civil War and World War II.
The use of collage and the so-called visual poems are of great interest in my pursuit of Miró. Of course, the designs for wall tapestries that he made during his career are rejoicing, such as hirondelle amour, the Sobreteixim series and the Fundació Tapestry.
This small-scale reproduction work is part of the trilogy Fuegos I and Fuegos III
