Carlos Fentanes (CF): In this era of ready made and Pop Art why choose Hyperrealism?
It seems that Hyperrealism is the opposite of this modern times, now everything has to be made as fast as possible.
Plus One Gallery (POG): (nothing)
Yes, I think that now everything has to be made as fast and possible and you have a plus if it can be industrialized.
Somebody ask me why choose Hyperrealism? and I had no answer too. When I was part of Galería Óscar Román in Mexico City I felt the pressure of rush: you have to create at least one work a month and I was very slow in my production, and I’m still very slow. It was not my decision; it’s the way I do things: I look at the progress and the try to correct what I’m doing and then look again and then correct again. It was a slow process and for me it was impossible to have a good work of art in the times the gallery wanted it. I don’t blame Plus One Gallery this time for not answering my DM, you don’t choose Hyperrealism, it choose you, the same as Abstract Art or Landscape your only option is to do the best of your style.
