The following portfolio comprises works from the large-format oil painting series, The Real World and Moonbeams. Most of them included in Ofill’s latest exhibition, ‘In Situ’. It is expected to be updated shortly. Please stay tuned.
“As part of an investigation based on photography and the impact of technology on our life, I am interested in exploring social and anthropological issues through Painting, as a traditional technique, as well as through multimedia techniques. The work —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.”
Echevarria’s most recent statement: emphasizes “altogether”, since the A-Picture-In-Motion project has been part of the artist’s pictorial exhibitions since 2011 on environs purposes.
TAKE A MOMENT TO GET TO KNOW A-PICTURE-IN-MOTION
A Picture In Motion is a looping film made from footage [recorded images, such as film stock, videotapes or digitized clips] which aims to be appreciated within the tradition of the art form called Video Art.
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 consists of fragments of urban and real-time life encapsulated in a single moving photograph (without sound, mainly) that is executed in loop mode and is presented at most as a Moving Art Picture; Except in some cases where the work allows its screening.
INPORTANT: The following excerpts are not fictitious examples of the original works. 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.”
