Salvado Juampere

A concept very frequently used on my last work, is the idea of showing the picturewindow. I use
figurative elements, particularly the landscape. Above those figurative elements, I superimpose
“abstracts” geometric shapes; sometimes it is seen in thelandscape and simultaneosly in other
spacial plane in front of the landscape, like if itwas in an inner space and through a window we
could see the outer space. That’svery close to Magritte’s art “Cuadros ventana”(“Windows-pictures”).
Other concept, is my interest for miss oposit conceptes, such figurative/abstract, clasical/contemporary, paint reality/photography reality.
Technically, I use traditional methods such as acrylic, and new technologies such as photography
and digital processes.
I photograph or paint rural landscapes, I manipulate the detailed landscapes, like the peasant in
the land. That is the footprintthat I left on the landscape.
