CONTEMPORARY ART - ARTISTS

The collection



The collection is the point of convergence where the plural vision of the collector Antoni Vila Casas meets contemporary art. It is a map of movements and decisions to accept particular works that embrace different ideologies and creative languages. Encompassing the period between the 1960’s and the present, with a few previous exceptions, a number of currents of pictorial and sculptural creation in Catalonia are displayed. Only the photography collection is within an international framework.

Joaquim Chancho

Painter who creates dialogue between lineal gesture and the writing of signs and lettering. Action and rhythm emerge from the simplicity of vertical and horizontal lines in search of the parallel path that the painting traces on the canvas. His pictograms are like large networks in which the viewer is aware of a certain unsettling order requiring their gaze so that the fundamental order of things may be distinguished. He has won numerous prestigious drawing and painting awards, including the 1987 Tarragona Biennial painting prize.




Josep Cisquella
Barcelona, 1955 - 2010




Ramón Clapers
Sant Llorenç Savall, Barcelona, 1962




Josep Clarà
Olot, Girona, 1878 - Barcelona, 1958

Originally from Olot, Josep Clarà moved after his training to live in Paris. There, his reference was Auguste Rodin and his sculptural work drew on symbolism to express human emotions through volume. Later on, influenced by Maillol, he developed his work to classic and Mediterranean styles linked to Noucentism. The Greco-Latin references, formal synthesis and purifying volumes led to an idealization of bodies and faces during the 1930s, the decade when he returned to Catalonia. Back in his homeland, Clarà undertook projects for public spaces and his career culminated with some monumental works based on the search for beauty.
