Curro González


Seville, 1960.

The main reason why I paint is that I can use images without them implying permanent values. They do not result in precise ideas nor do they propose dogmas. My ideas tend to be “vague ideas”. They refer to what I desire, or to what I do not know well or can’t specify. For this, I need images that manifest themselves in constant metamorphosis.

Sometimes obsessive, sometimes mild, they work as autonomous metaphors; that is my job as an artist.

I do not think of my works as stories. Rather, their condition is to live in ambiguity. However, I am aware that we are confronted with words and, contrary to what copyists did in the Middle Ages by decorating the margins of texts with whimsical images, in my works the narration belongs to the margin.
