About the artist

Jordi Aguilar’s latest project, Bulls & Fight. This does not seem to us to be a creation that marks a turning-point in his career, rather a parenthesis in his natural work, which usually strikes a balance between incisive, effusive, structural abstract painting and textual painting. Aguilar uses the pictorial base to emphasise the body of a work that, on this occasion, he has chosen to give concrete form through signs. In this project, the artist seeks to create an image that emulates his awe at the bull’s frightening presence, which he prints and transforms against a large number of backgrounds and supports (mainly canvas, wood and paper). Fighting bulls are not gregarious animals. Before charging, they give a warning look. They square up, adopting a defiant attitude before scraping their hoof and attacking. We could not find a better metaphor for the painterly attitude to art.

Bulls & Fight, el darrer projecte de Jordi Aguilar. No ens sembla un treball que marqui un punt d’inflexió en la seva trajectòria, sinó més aviat un parèntesi enmig del seu treball natural, que generalment balanceja entre la pintura abstracta —incisiva, efusiva i estructural— i la pintura textual. La base pictòrica li serveix ara per subratllar el cos d’una obra que, per a l’ocasió, ha volgut concretar sígnicament. Aguilar ha mirat de plasmar una imatge que emulés el seu astorament cap a la presència esglaiant del toro, que el pintor ha imprès i ha transformat sobre múltiples fons i suports (principalment tela, fusta i paper). El toro de lídia és un animal gregari. En bandada és d’allò més mansoi, però esdevé insegur quan es veu sol. Llavors és quan es torna violent i ataca sense pietat. Tanmateix, el toro no és un animal traïdor. Abans d’envestir avisa amb la mirada. Es quadra, es col·loca amb actitud desafiant abans de brunyir la pota i atacar. No podríem trobar una metàfora millor de l’actitud pictòrica davant l’art.
