Víctor López-Rúa is a Spanish artist whose proposal revolves around painting, specifically, the position of representational painting today; of what can become within this convulsed planet of Contemporary Art and its unique communication with the viewer. It is an exhibition of enormous versatility, transversal in its multiple meanings and which connects with what is the core of art: its power to amaze and, at the same time, its colossal speculative power. The artist, also, has an original syntax, an innovative and unprecedented method of communicating with the public through painting and video: Stereoscopic Painting; an installation where we are conceptually bombarded and whose purpose is to trigger in the visitor a deeper examination of painting as a specific medium, its relationship with audiovisual technology and science; but also, the lucubration about the imprint of the materiality of the image, its physicality, about the mediation of the brain and the limits of vision. Thus, the exhibition seeks to provoke a different look, to show a new mode of transmission, an original moment of union in which time stands still, the passing of minutes is suspended and the spectator deepens into the instant, sinks into it: into a Vertical Instant.
