TO BRIDGE THE GAP BETWEEN PHOTOGRAPHY AND PAINTING
Javier Molina: “I realise that my unconscious effort is to bridge the gap between traditional photography and traditional painting. The operative words here are ‘traditional’ and ‘bridge the gap’. An art critic placed this final estate into the category of Magic Realism, a term which is commonly applied to literature, specifically Latin American fiction.
Far too many times I have been asked if some of my work is a photograph of a painting, missing the point all together, and equally more often than not people ask me how the image is done. We accept the ‘how’ and delve into the image itself. I have followed Alfred Stieglitz’s motto: “It is not what I see but how I see it”.
