RECENT WORK IN PAINTING (A SELECTION)
The following portfolio of selected paintings is expected to be updated shortly. Please, stay tuned.
“As part of an investigation based on Photography, I am interested in exploring social and anthropological topics through Painting, as a traditional technique, as well as through multimedia techniques. The artwork —altogether—, invites the audience to reflect surrounded by an environmental concept intended to depict the realm of the images that we experience on a daily basis.”

TAKE A MOMENT TO GET TO KNOW A-PICTURE-IN-MOTION
A Picture-In-Motion is a loop motion-picture film made from footage [scene or action recorded on film or video] and intended to be appreciated as a photography in motion.
In the case of Ofill, Pictures-In-Motion could be defined as the painter’s interpretation of what would be moving photographs. His work, since 2009, concerns the metropolis of New York, where the project was first created. It also explores both, philosophical and anthropological aspects of the urban life and its inhabitants.
Ofill’s Pictures In Motion consist of fragments of urban life and real time, encapsulated in a single moving photograph that is executed in loop mode, finally presented as a work of art: the type of work that belongs to video art.
INPORTANT: The following excerpts are not fictitious examples of the original moving pictures. For better image quality, information about existing editions or for any other concerns, please contact us.
“The audiovisual work that he presents, ‘Looking For Abstraction (At The Jungle)’ is an atypical publicity of New York City, which invites it to become shade and rain to travel through it. The city turned into art: the Real Estate is here the actual state in which the artist’s pictorial visions become habitable.”
