_The Role of Drawing V (Artist’s Books)_Curated by Martín Carrasco Pedrero
The work of Emilio Gañán fits in the currents of the geometry that began with the historical avant-garde. Harmony, rhythm and the balance of its forms are connected with a deep knowledge of drawing, where he proposes a lyrical space, without renouncing to the sensuality of matter and color.
The artist stays true to the painting and geometry without therefore flee from other disciplines and supports arising in the development of his work procedure in the search for pure form, which can thrill the spectator from abstract patterns without having as its mission the expression of particular a story or meaning. He conceives the picture, in short, as an object with transforming talisman power. His sculpture is developed in similar parameters, making the insistent minimalist repetition of the form is part of the subject to be treated, and that the pure color on the wood is shown with intensity.
Despite their apparent coldness, Gañán’s creative processes are not strict or mathematical at all, even though he handles numerical and emotional values in them.
