This week: Guillermo Santomà.

Artist Guillermo Santomà
Lives in Barcelona, Spain

How do you describe your own artistic practice?

Any artistic practice is described by your own work, although that practice is words, you never explain your true symbol.

Which question or theme is central in your work?

Language, the passage from meaning to symbol, the possibility that nothing really exists.

What was your first experience with art?

Nature, you look opposite as if you were purely artificial. The reading of a meaningless story.

Guillermo Santomà - CCCB Barcelona (2018)

What is your greatest source of inspiration?

Any expression that is able to get out of bounds, when the symbol exceeds the language because it does not fit in it. A story you have never heard.

What do you need in order to create your work?

Someone to look at it, the possibility of continuation without control.
