BID HISTORY

DESCRIPTION

MIQUEL MONT (Barcelona, 1963).
"Peau XXVIII. Paris, 2003.
Acrylic and gel on plywood.
Signed, dated, titled and located on the back.
Work reproduced on the artist's website.
Provenance: Important Spanish Collection.
Measurements: 200 x 200 cm.
This painting belongs to the series "Skins", which Miquel Mont himself defines as follows: "A pictorial support (plywood, canvas,...) is perforated at regular intervals according to a weft. This weft is off-centre or displaced in relation to the limits of the support. It is covered with several layers of thick, dense paint until the holes in the weft are filled or smoothed out". Miquel Mont's painting is based on theories of pictorial perception, specifically those that place the work and the space, the representation and the support in dialogue. In his exhibitions, the pieces "inhabit" the wall, escaping from their traditional function as a painting.
Miquel Mont began painting in the 1980s. At the end of this decade he moved to Paris, where he has worked and lived ever since. From then until the end of the 1990s, his works are worked so densely that they end up becoming three-dimensional objects. Since 2000 he has combined his artistic work with teaching, currently teaching at the École Supérieure d'Art et de Design TALM-Tours and the École Nationale Supérieure d'Architecture de Paris-Belleville. He has held exhibitions all over Spain, for example at the Centre d'Art la Panera; or in France, in spaces such as the Galerie Aline Vidal or the FRAC Alsace; but also in Austria. Along the same lines, his works can be found in numerous collections, such as the "la Caixa" Collection, the Museum of Fine Arts of Alava or the Mumok. In his works, industrial materials are presented naked, showing their roughness and the economy of means that characterises the artist's work. Methacrylate or wood become tools that break the frames of presentation to expand and dialogue with the space where they are presented.
