Pablo del Pozo

Badajoz, 1994

Lives and works in Barcelona

 

The works by Pablo del Pozo have a strong autobiographical character, linked to the experiences of the artist. The feeling of belonging to a place, displacement and nostalgia are subjects that concern him. From the characteristics of the materials used (clay, plaster, pigments and also found objects), he seeks to talk about the precariousness of life, thus generating a reflection on the daily reality.

Throughout his career, Pablo Palazuelo developed a very personal form of geometric abstraction linked to esoteric issues, Kabbalah, Eastern philosophy, along with mathematics, physics and scientific thinking.

 

Palazuelo, initially, studied architecture before deciding to devote himself only to painting in 1939. Later, he also ventured into the third dimension, producing sculpture from 1954.

 

In the 1940s, his work was influenced by the abstraction of Paul Klee, but in the early 1950s he began to draw inspiration from his readings of Theosophy and hermetic texts dealing with the connections between numbers, the sacred or the psychic, and the correspondence between sound and color, focusing on the language of geometric forms. For Palazuelo, geometry is at the origin of life and allows a view of hidden structures, potential new forms and the metamorphosis of one form in another.
