Concealed Spaces, José Manuel Ballester

Through the manipulation of a series of works by master artists, Ballester poses a series of subjects ̶ revisionist to a certain extent ̶ in which he dares to modify the composition of famous art history masterpieces. The common factor in all these works is that the images have been “rid” of all human presence, leaving only the setting that would normally function as a contextual reference. The narrative changes, and the story in which the characters were the conducting thread is transformed into a scenario dominated by silence. Armed with the Photoshop program, Ballester ‘purifies’ the scene. Then follows the process of ‘re-painting’, when the artist ‘fills’ the spaces previously occupied by the eliminated images to make room for new images, in which nature and architecture cease to be background elements to become the main subjects.

A void that may seem disquieting can be perceived in these images. The works are turned into a space for reflection and meditation, in which man appears implicitly through the architecture. The artist proposes, through these pieces, a tour of universal art history. Perhaps the fact that he is a painter has inspired him to ‘revisit’ these works and make us reflect on their complexity, which we often lose sight of when delving into their evident narrative. X
