Jerónimo Elespe

Description

Jerónimo Elespes work and creative process is examined in this richly illustrated monograph featuring numerous works from his oeuvre. Elespe uses his drawings and oil paintings as abstract diaries, wherein he believes that the repetition of cycles found in our domestic routines can actually spur creativity, if channelled in the right way. In his exploration of different pictorial languages, he seemingly compresses time, leaving the observer in a sort of limbo somewhere between a daydream and awakening from a dream. Elespe speaks about this cumulative process in an interview with Hans Ulrich Obrist, while Agustín Pérez Rubio offers a critical analysis of the artists work process in an interview with Hans Ulrich Obrist, Agustín Pérez Rubio offers a critical analysis of the artists work
