According to Alama, painting’s purpose is to tell stories. These narratives are meant to move us and express certain emotions to viewers, since that is the meaning of art, as he understands it. In this exhibition, Díaz Alamà’s proposal is drawn from a meticulous selection of classical works of art from leading historical masters, including Velazquez, Goya, Géricault, Friedrich, Manet and Degas; his paintings are developed from some of their most important works. In a process of emancipation that for the artist means a new creative experience, combined with an exercise in technical virtuosity, Alama presents the great classics of the history of painting as cut-ups, covering them over with heavy layers of acrylic paint or dense coats of resin. The works are then fragmented, torn and sliced, and then, in a gesture of either rebellion or extreme loyalty, are re-attached, recomposed and sutured together.
