MEXICO, 1981

The artwork of Federico (Escoto) and Roberto (Carrara) investigates that extraordinary relationship that operates between the convention of the human figure in a mimetic sense, and the exception in its use of color, understood as a disruptive element of traditional narrative, especially by the chromatic palette that they employ. The color is understood as an artistic subjectivity and it is added to the gestural subjectivity of the body itself as an expressive form that breaks the literal figuration and gives the work a dreamlike character, which is what allows everything to happen. Work that starting from a classic sense of portrait, affects its tradition thanks to its eclecticism. A pictorial language that coexists with digital manipulation; digital image that moves impeccably through the brush to the canvas, art and advertising image; cinematographic photography and fashionable portrait.
