Josep Bofill
OMBRA, 2004 | Mixed media on board

The contrast between isolation and integration is important to Josep Bofill. The artist expresses this contrast in opposite equivalents such as man and woman, inside and out, light and dark, nature and mind, subjective and objective, individual and universal. The underlying theme of his art is the continual search for balance between extremes or for the elimination of duality. This small painting depicts a lonely figure. The figure has been drawn against a rainy, vague background, and yet its posture expresses both hope and a certain kind of pride. The little painting is shrouded in darkness but at the same time it seems like there is a circle of light surrounding the figure. As a result, the sense of individuality disappears, evoking universal feelings of transcendence.
