Artist Review – Vicenç Viaplana


When I first came across Vicenç Viaplana’s work I thought it was photography as it reminded me very much of the late Cy Twombly’s photographic work. Instead his pieces are mainly created as silkscreens or Acrylic on canvas and wood. Vicenç Viaplana’s is someone who is clearly in love with the process of his work as he states on his blog “Painting is like One Way direction road. Intuition and Chance introduce multiple variables in an always unique process. If you try to walk the same path It will take you, again and again, to different places. And this is amazing.” What I like about his work is its dream like quality, it is vague and obscure and yet suggestive at the same time. I love it’s monochromatic grainy texture. Overall I’m impressed with his technique and the photographic quality to his work.
