Antonio González

“Antonio González’s painting feeds on a contradiction: it never seems like enough and, paradoxically, it is always a bit excessive. Surely because his work is a kind of direct and intuitive thought that is resolved in terms of managing the pictorial space. We are talking about a painting that resists, that appears and disappears. As spectators we must abandon ourselves to it, rush over it. It is painting as an abyss, as an impossible revelation. There is always something in it that eludes us. In the words of Georges Didi-Huberman, “when seeing is losing”. As if the forms lived condemned to their extinction, remaining, however, when closing the eyes. A latent painting that emerges without allowing us to access the mystery. ”
