Antonio Chaurand

The scenes of Antonio Chaurand tremble in a real sense, as if the moment in which they existed was too fleeting to capture it. Although his images come from photographs, perhaps it is not the scene itself that is the most important or significant, but the composition and the way of applying the painting. In everyday environments, in solitary rooms or meetings, there arises at the same time an idea of n atmosphere of mystery, or of a penumbra in movement, where all the characters are in fact anonymous. The figures dissipate in a kind of silhouettes or gaseous beings. The light is exaggerated to achieve the right intonations and the most dramatic chiaroscuro. The landscape format brings you closer to a vision of the screen, of an eye that wants to perceive more, or of a sequence that does not stop. Antonio Chaurand's paintings are images where the immediacy of time becomes a sensitive vibration.
