Pol Codina

Pol Codina’s aesthetic comes not from conceptual ambiguity nor form the interpretative darkness. It is strong, powerful, and clear. The outline of a form from the nature, empty inside, fills up the piece with content. Then, the imagination doesn’t need to do the rest because the artist has already done it. The spectator can, nevertheless, dive into an Homeric interpretation of the fish, the bodies, the animals and into the see of the artist’s thinking, sometimes brave, sometimes in calm. Manuel Patricio
