The exhibition catalogue for ‘Opus nirgum’, a solo presentation of work by the Mallorcan artist Girbent that features ten black-and-white works created between 2014 and 2020. The cinema and the Western pictorial tradition are his primary sources of inspiration; his paintings recreate a cinematographic atmosphere that captures the sensual essence of stills from his favourite films. Girbent’s work can be viewed as a reflective inquiry into the meaning of the painted image and the act of painting itself in the age of the internet. His choice of artistic materials – charcoal and white oil paint – is used to convey his fascination with parallel universes of aesthetically crafted images.
