About La Piel

La Piel's paintings are sinister, they make ugliness and violence an aesthetic factor, resulting from the collage of various images of documentary portraits that are even ambiguous in the definition of the sexual gender. They are hard images, which simultaneously repel and attract; that is why they are grotesque, insofar as they allow the coexistence of two apparently antagonistic worlds, the beautiful and the abject, at one point. Thus, ideal representation is surpassed, giving rise to an excessive regime of representation of form, a fusion of parts and territories, where exaggeration, satire and the bizarre are present, creating a disturbing and sentimental imagery.
