In JORDI ALCARAZ – defying boundaries, the artist furthers his explorations and near-obsessive ruminations on the limits of interior/exterior concepts, reality and evocation, presence versus absence, volume and void – the rational and the poetic.

Alcaraz opens surprising realms through the use of bending, tearing and puncturing materials in unpredictable ways. To quote the artist, "The surface of the works have a plastic behavior similar to the surface of water…it can be traversed, altered, shocked...in which the absence is more important than the evidence; the absence of almost everything, the role of disappearance of the work, the permanence of the action."
