About Jose Gomez's Work
Metallic surfaces and reflections have a charming and mysterious quality in the art of self-portraiture. Self-portraiture art is psychological evidence of not always objective reflections of the viewers and their personalities. This series has a spiritual nature and energy to discern the human reaction with the glossy and colourful finish. The illusion of the reflective material almost appearing to be in motion like water, it gives a big visual impact to the wall space; embodying the materiality, light and reflection of infinite space.
With this series of minimal paintings, Jose's aim is to explore and to pleasure our visual organism, based in the interpretation of our appearance, on the scheme of observation that make possible an emotional response.

The artwork is on sale.
