Jose Ramón Lozano (Spain)

International Artist

Jose Ramón Lozano is a Spanish artist born in Ceuta, witha degree in Fine Arts. He currently lives and works in Madrid.

His work immerses us in a world of contemplative images in the manner of an erratic soul beings whose eyes speak of glimpses of an elusive existence, as if contemplating these figures as yourself in the mirror. Lozano’s works are reflections of the spirit which are less physical to transmute into ideas. We are not human beings, but ideas of human beings, face masks that leave behind if a perishable trace of a sense of the ephemeral in a changing world.

Jose Ramón Lozano is a Spanish artist born in Ceuta, graduated in Fine Arts. He currently lives and works in Madrid.

Jose Ramón Lozano’s painting moves into the contradiction among movement and stillness; indeterminacy and rotundity of shapes; and a space time continuum that deprives figures of a specific background and suspends them in an infinite existential space they fail to understand, waiting for something with a meaning that the audience seems unaware.

The action of the brush models a frozen gesture with undetermined faces. Sometimes this apparent vagueness can drive to an omen of abstraction when it seems that at any time these separate spots will expand all over the canvas until the figure disintegrate completely and as a consequence the concept of painting as a flat reality breaks.

The hieratic effigies with eyes that rarely look but they transmit thought and communication move in an immobile gesture. Fragmented heads whose blurred face points out the process of interrupted painting that leaves these beings unfinished.

If I had to define Lozano’s painting the best epithet would be self-absorption due to his figures invite to seclusion at the same time they caress perpetuity. These creatures in an effort of autonomy want to rebel against the fate their creator has imposed on them and they beg the audience in a last desperate longing for freedom. The painting does not speak through the artist but it thinks by itself. The artwork is speaking although we cannot listen to it!
