( PROFILE ) SILENCE, by Andrés Ibáñez (*) Miguel Angel Invarato is an artist who belatedly joined the adventure of creation. This reflects in the vital, emotional and pensive experience his work exudes. It is like reaching maturity suddenly, without going through the unbalances and hesitations of the beginning. His world moves between the conceptual meaning of existence and its passing by. Concept of evocation and mysteries; beyond the closed, finished thought of philosophical reflection. Poetry and poetic breath, favoring the announced and yet not fulfilled. Snippets of thoughts… evocations. There is an itinerary across life and its fleeting passage, which materializes paradoxically in quiet frozen images. A world of the becoming and the transcendent; which questions instead of offering answers. His photography is, formally deeply romantic and contemplative, of a beautiful and contemporary esthetic, evoking the melancholic poetry of other times. Facing his work, we have to necessarily remain Silent. (*) Andrés Ibáñez is founder and director of the Ibáñez de Olula Del Rio Museum –Almeria. Spain) 12-2006
