Mi compromise (My Commitment) is a solo exhibition of work by Guerrero Medina on at the Espais Volart from 24 January to 26 July 2020. The display, conceived and directed by Antoni Vila Casas and Guerrero Medina, brings together almost 120 pieces by the artist born in Jaén in 1942 and gives emphasis to the most significant works from each of Guerrero Medina’s creative periods. The exhibition is set out in four thematic sections each concerned with the human figure: Art-protest, Exiles, Fragments of Memory, and Painting Velázquez. 

Art-protest presents a selection of works from his early period and includes pieces from the series Procesión de los necios (Procession of Dunces), from the mid-sixties, La silla de la muerte (The Death Chair), dedicated to Salvador Puig Antich (1974), and the work Paredón y fusilamiento (Wall and Execution) (1975). Exiles covers an extensive series offering testimony of the 1939 exodus in which the artist conjures up a regression in order to experience the upheaval and horror of human exodus.

Fragments of Memory is the result of a process of introspection which led the artist to automatically sketch expressive possibility without controlling the narrative, without attempting to salvage images from nostalgic memory and endow them with an evocative form, but let them flow to depict them at a later date on canvas.

Finally, Painting Velázquez includes a series of watercolours of some of the figures that appear in the works of the old master.  Some of them are important characters while others are secondary.  The idea is to award them a central role which they may not have had in the original paintings.
