Eduard Bigas - Gods, Demons and the Sound of Water

25/02/2023 - 30/04/2023
Can Mario, Palafrugell

Since Eduard Bigas (Palafrugell, Girona, 1969) left his home town, he has travelled around many parts of the world, but few places have made such an impression on him as Japan and Taiwan. One might say that the artworks featured in this space are the result of a transformative experience, or even an initiatory journey.

The influences of the ukyo-e are clearly evident in the precise stroke, harmony of volumes and predominance of the void; in the tea-stained backgrounds and even in the small red stamp that signs each of the canvases. The oriental influence is further present in many other aspects of the artist’s work: the meticulousness, slowness of the processes, an attentive observation of reality, and his, almost pantheistic, appreciation of the world and its things.

The careful selection of works that is presented here synthesizes the already assimilated idea of exchange between cultures. It is the symbiosis between Western and Eastern perspectives. His work incorporates, in equal parts: the Mediterranean light; impulsive spirit; Surrealism of Dalí and Cuixart, from the Empordà; along with Eastern mythology replete with evocative and fantastical beings. The sun and clear light of the Costa Brava, alongside the mysterious nebulae of Miyajima Island. Like the fish man, Bigas becomes both hunter and prey, like the traveller who lets himself be seduced by what he sees, who is both god and demon.
