GRADUAL STRUCTURES & HOMAGES
Roger assiduously studies the History of Art aimed at achieving a solid and original work. He finds and pays special attention to approaches, similar to his own, that other artists have had on art and creative processes to incorporate them into the body of his work. During this process and in a natural way, he has come up with pieces in which he pays tribute to his most important references. In these series he captures the aesthetic and conceptual findings that he finds interesting from these pioneers, with his own creative and technical concerns.
HOMAGE TO LE WITT
In the drawings Homage to LeWitt, Roger starts systemizing the use of the pattern to show how the three dimensional space can be modified and even simulated in a flat representation. With this precedent, a new series comes up where twelve paintings by Mondrian, of different periods, are volumetrically reconstructed. Color and pattern, strictly subject to an isometric perspective are linked to build between volumes represented without being distorted by the visual perspective. Space and chromatic relations become explicit, not being able to discern which is used to build the space to a basic level: he shows the laws imposed to build the painting by watching the painting itself. In this way the attention is focused in a more rational and less intuitive way on the structures in the canvas rather than on the shapes and lines.
