_JAVIER LEÓN PÉREZ - IMMERSION
Opening Brunch- Sunday 23.06.2019 from 13:00 to 20:00 in presence of the artist.
JAVIER LEÓN PÉREZ - Born in Seville in 1977, lives & works in Seville & Madrid, Spain.
Artist Javier León Pérez chose IMMERSIONas the title of his first exhibition in the Art’loft, Lee-Bauwens gallery, representing a meditative metaphor for his creation process. For each piece, the artist lives a deep experience that he wants to share with visitors.
In his work with paper or for his sketches, the detailed, almost obsessive process and the eternal repetition of small elements covering the surface act as a mantra. For the visitor, the initial impact of powerful colours or the monochrome palette combined with tactile textures of paper, graphite or ink turn it into a complete sensory experience. The viewer’s eyes explore the surface and discover the different densities, quantities and the contrasts between light and shadow.
Javier León Pérez’s abstract monochrome pieces monochromes flow in a rhizomatic movement, immersing the visitor in an imaginary world that we can name “El pliegue del tiempo”(The fold of time) in the artist’s native language.
Javier León Pérez began his training at the Seville School of Art and Applied Art, achieving his diploma in 2001 specialising in ceramics and sculpture. In 2007, he began a B.A course at the Seville Arts University, before completing his Master’s degree in Fine Art in Creation and Research MAC+1 at the Complutense University of Madrid, obtaining the highest distinction with his research project "Return to Silence", which focused on pictorial processes where the repetition of elements is analogue to meditative rituals.
