POETIC OF THE ANNIHILATION BY JOSEBA ESKUDI
Joseba Eskubi works in the building of a stage space, or better, of the different and separated stage spaces that are each of his paintings. Separated and demarcated spaces, in which the painting mass is spread out, turned, heaped up, crushed and flattened till it becomes and atmosphere in earth, place, in before and behind and in figure-mass. In this work there is not an image that can be separated from that organic mass of painting which turns a painting into a body.

Antti Lovag for Pierre Cardin, 1975-1989
Antti Lovag has said that the straight line is an “aggression against nature.”
“Whether for economic reasons or lack of technical solutions, human beings have confined themselves to cubes full of dead ends and angles that impede our movement and break our harmony… Conviviality is a circular phenomenon. The circle structures the way human life is carried out.” - Antti Lovag
