Viladecans Posters

Material and form

Viladecans’ work in recent years has included schematic figures: a globe, a letter, a book, a horseshoe, the two sides of the brain. He has treated reality through reduction since the beginning of his career, creating synthetic models that speak of inner life, the complexity of the world and the language of art. His signs now become icons. At the same time, Viladecans works pictorially with texture and transparency. Many of his works utilise layers of colour, alluding to the passage of time, depositing layers of meaning onto the reality of the world and the importance of the inner world hidden behind the appearance of things. Objects and symbols emerge from black or coloured backgrounds, and at times a linked calligraphic text that is both text and drawing.
