Comb your hair with water and go to church

Julio Rondo

17 May > 21 June 2008

Once again, the artist replaces his traditional painting tools to use an airbrush in order to lay acrylic paint on glass, with a technique he elaborated.

By not allowing himself to have direct contrast with the glass, Julio Rondo leaves space for the color to disseminate on the surface. Transfer on glass creates a series of layers of lines translating the artists souvenirs.

His inspiration takes roots in the trails of the past, memory manifestation of beings, places and feelings linked to them.

He composes his paintings from a corpus of drawings, drafts and “scrawls”, accumulated for years that progressively resurface and which he reappropriates. Painting becomes an impulse for subjective interpretation that Rondo built from his own past.
