José Talamás Abularach
Digital work on canvas
José Talamás Abularach is a Bolivian artist born in 1976 in Cochabamba, at the heart of Bolivia. He currently resides in Santa Cruz de la Sierra, where he practices his profession as an architect. His selected artwork for "FUORI E-VENTO" is titled "Sentimiento" and was created in 2021 as a digital piece on canvas. "Sentimiento" is a work that stands out for its predominant colors: purple and pink, creating an evocative background. At the center of the piece is a blonde-haired woman, depicted in the distinctive style of Picasso. The figure's eyes gaze directly at the viewer but are misaligned, while the nose is portrayed from a contrasting perspective to that of the face. The mouth, larger in proportion than it should be, is painted in a vibrant red color, becoming the focal point of the artwork. The symbolic use of the red color in the lips of the figure can be interpreted as an intense representation of emotions or feelings. Red, often associated with passion and expressiveness, emphasizes the prominent role of the lips and suggests deep emotional communication. Through this combination of visual elements, José Talamás Abularach invites the viewer to explore the complexity of human emotions. The distorted representation of the figure draws attention to the subjectivity of the human experience and the multiplicity of our identities. With his background as an architect, Talamás Abularach brings a unique perspective to his artistic work. His ability to blend digital technology with his artistic talent allows him to create pieces that merge tradition and innovation. In "Sentimiento," the artist skillfully combines the influence of Picasso with his personal interpretation, creating an artwork that evokes intense emotions and stimulates profound reflection on the intricate nuances of the human condition. In summary, "Sentimiento" by José Talamás Abularach is a digital piece on canvas that, through its bold use of colors, distorted and symbolic depiction of the face, and emotional message, invites the viewer to explore the complexity of human feelings and appreciate the fusion of tradition and innovation in the Bolivian artist's work.
