Fernando Clemente


Jerez de la Frontera, Spain, 1975

Fernando Clemente creates works in which the organic coexists with blurred structures, which gives them a character of great spontaneity. They are poetic works that dialogue very directly with the viewer, avoiding prejudices and exploring the possibilities of the medium from the non-figuration. His paintings are based on intuition, they play with irony, they are constituted from an extensive and flexible world that is porous to the things that happen around them.

There is no univocal story in his approaches, quite the contrary: in his painting prevails enjoyment and emotion in the discovery, knowing how to let oneself be carried away by an open territory that must be assumed as a testing ground where error or chance have a place.

His works are part of important institutional collections such as CIFO, Cisneros Fontanal Art Foundation (Miami), CAAC, Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporáneo (Seville), CAC Málaga (Málaga) or UNIA, Universidad Internacional de Andalucía.
