MELIFLUO

Melifluo is a direct reflection of emotions and sounds.

Variable, changing and nuanced emotions. Emotions that I have accepted as opposed to others and which have arisen against my will. The colours, shapes and textures of these paintings are the result of a process of acceptance, recognition and emotional healing.

In these paintings lies the music and its sounds, which have accompanied me during the years. Music is on of the fundamental pillars of my life and has never stopped playing; that is why the series is divided into three musical forms: Nocturnes, Capriccions, and Impromptus.

Each painting, despite its format, is an immersion in a color, a sound or an emotion that has overwhelmed me.

THE PROCESS

The creative process of this series does not contemplate a previous sketch. I have painted directly on canvas, transmitting my emotional landscape through each brushstroke in a state of meditation or almost trance. I did not plan what was going to emerge from each canvas beacuse I did not know it myself. Nor do I know it even now.

The creation of this series spans a total of five insconstant years, and various places of creation: Seville, Alájar, Galicia and Zaragoza.

The paintings are the result of intimate and supportive processes: their appreciation requires that you approach them and allow them to whisper to you.

STRUCTURE
THE SERIES IS MADE OF THREE SECTIONS, THREE MUSICAL FORMATS

I. NOCTURNES

The nocturne is a term used mainly by John Field and Fréderic Chopin in generally pianistic works, of a calm and meditative nature. It has a pathetic-romantic expression and slow movement that accelerates in the central part of the work.

II. CAPRICCIOS

Capriccio is a term used for a variety of compositions whose most outstanding characteristic is freedom in form and mode. Formerly it was a piece that approached fantasy and ricercare. At present its shape is closer to that of the rondo, with a markedly bright character.

III. IMPROMPTU

The term impromptu, a French word with Latin roots and relatively modern origin, designates a small instrumental work, with a single movement and the fruit of the composer's free inspiration.
