There are artists who, through their simplicity, connect with the roots of tradition. They are what we could call intuitive artists, those who, like a dowser, are able to detect water underground, even in the most infertile desert; Antonia Ferrer is one of those artists.
Presenting her second solo show with Alzueta Gallery, Antonia Ferrer showcases a series of medium format never-seen-before pieces for the first time at our Turó Park gallery.
Only with her hands, Antonia Ferrer (Spain, 1965) with clear and simple matter, as if it were only sand or light earth, she is able to connect with oriental painting -especially Korean and Japanese-, giving a flat surface the depth of a landscape, the remoteness of a sea, the darkness of a well.
Ferrer is inspired by many sources: from Tapies his surfaces, from the Mediterranean the light of its beaches. It seems an easy exercise, but in that false and impossible ease lies the quality and passion that her pieces generate. She is an artist at the beginning of a path, a well-trodden path, but one in which, from the beginning, she has left her own very recognizable mark.
