    Martí Cormand invents a hidden abstract world which is made visible through representation. This realist version of the world is infiltrated by this other universe and disintegrates it.
    Cormand acts within the systems of realism and abstraction in order to carry painting to a point of articulation in self- awareness. His work contains qualities of transparency, density, light, shadows and extreme precision with similarities with the Dutch School of painting. These are qualities which are brought together with references to digital technologies in the reproduction of images. He creates a world where that which is artificial infiltrates into the natural.

    Born in Barcelona in 1970, he has lived and worked in Brooklyn since 2002.

The artist is attracted to the nature of the ocean and for its curious alliance with the city; the lighting of a port, the volumes and lineal projections of piers, sea mists or the light of the sky in its struggle to emerge from amid the artificial light of the metropolis.

  • "Arranz-Bravo. Self Portraits".  

    Start date: 21/09/2010  Finish date: 31/12/2010
    "Arranz-Bravo. Self Portraits" is an exhibition produced by the Arranz-Bravo Foundation of l’Hospitalet de Llobregat with the aim of displaying the collection of over fifty self portraits donated by the artist to the institution. Throughout his career, Arranz-Bravo has cultivated a deep and obsessive relationship with this genre, becoming one of the most committed artists in Spain to the tradition of the European existential self portrait. Like Durero, Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Artaud and Francis Bacon, the Barcelona artist understands the self portrait as a means of introspective exploration and at the same time, as a means for reiterating some of his main artistic interests, such as the intensity of the look, organic expressivity and the effusion of colour. This is a good opportunity to see this singular facet of one of the most outstanding creators in the field of the figurative arts in Spain during the second half of the 20th century and the beginnings of the 21st..
