Josep Mora - Collage

Collage

Everything begins by trimming rounds with several diameters with a cutting plotter. Next, a sketch with the main lines of the portrait is plotted on paper, which will serve as a guide to the transparent cellular polycarbonate bottom. And they will stick thousands of points of transparent, transparent gray vinyl in a single tone that becomes darkened as they are superimposed, and they are joined apparently disordered but methodically placed. When the viewer moves away from the work, he reveals the details and nuances as a whole. Everything starts from a photograph, and the work ends after several weeks of work in an authentic and unique portrait.

Everything came about accidentally, when we manipulated the sticky vinyl, and I verified that overlapping them gave a variety of tones.

And I proposed the challenge of creating large-scale figurative portraits without painting.

And after exploring and experimenting for a long time, a surprising, unpublished and contemporary technique emerges.
