Jorge Diezma

 

presented by TRAVESIA CUATRO

 

 

Born 1973 in Madrid, Spain

 

 

Jorge Diezma uses technique as a way of confronting the crisis of experience. Not some kind of “integral technique”, which, substituting the ancient sources of knowledge (today expired), provides lessons about the sense of life, but a specific technique - pictorial, in this case. Yet ethical, though. Painting as action, as an ethical activity. The (ethical) virtue of Diezma’s style is in the case is his ability to maintain tension between what the painting represents (animal) and what the painting is (object), between the eloquence of the brushes and the silence of those donkeys, birds, etc.
