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 Promenade model is an exercise in reinterpreting the artist's floral work transferred to the rug. The nanimarquina team has worked carefully on the selection of each of the flowers, paying special attention to the scale and color in search of the appropriate compositional balance to ensure that Promenade is integrated and coexists in multiple spaces.
It is also worth remarking its wide range composed of 38 different colors, an exhaustive chromatic work.
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.
