SPAIN, 1965

For Pérez-Jofre painting by directly observing the subject is like a performance. It is an action of resistance in the world of social networks and post-photography. He considers that looking at a stone, a tree or a glass of water is a political stance. An act of subversion.
Showing objectively, the urban environment has led him to deposit papers on the road on sidewalks for days or weeks. Its own relief, the dirt of the streets, the wheels of the cars, the soles of the shoes of anonymous passers-by, the unpredictable atmospheric conditions and the course of time, contribute to create pieces of extraordinary texture and subtle colour, difficult to obtain by other means.
