Nanimarquina presents a new collaboration full of color at the hand of Barcelona artist Santi Moix.
For this collaboration, pieces have been chosen where the artist explores the parallelism between life and death through his biomorphic flowers. His use of color goes beyond the merely decorative: it is the resource to enhance and attenuate certain details while paying special attention to in-betweens; those intermediate processes in flowers such as the moments before their birth, their explosion of color or their decay.
The smaller models called Bloom are the extraction of Promenade flowers as separate pieces. They represent two moments in the life cycle of a flower: wilting and flowering. They are combinable with each other and also complement the Colors collection.
Santi Moix's work is characterized by accumulation and fragmentation, sensuality and an acute sense of form. He mines literature and Art History for scenes that provide points of departure for his fantastical abstractions. He has created work in a wide variety of media, though he is known primarily as a printmaker and painter. He was awarded a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation fellowship in 2002.
