JAVIER PASTOR

Elixir of Nature
May 20 – June 9, 2016
Reception: Thursday, May 26, 2016 6-8 PM

Javier Pastor’s work blurs the lines between media and technique in a way that wouldn’t have been possible just a few decades ago. Pastor creates digital works that take their conceptual cues from traditional cut-and paste paper collage. He begins by painting normally and then finishes each piece on the computer, turning it into what he calls “an infographic.” In fact, this final product is a pure, standalone piece of imagery that wouldn’t have been out of place in a collage exhibition a century ago.

Pastor’s works are non-representational collections of shapes. The shapes are layered, compared, and dissected in ways that play with transparency and the notion of building a composition out of parts. His technique and process in building his shapes feature many of these concerns explored in collage. Pastor also works in the plastic arts occasionally, creating acrylic paintings among other mediums of work. His aesthetic remains remarkably constant between media – evidence that he is a maestro of precision in technique.

Pastor was born in Alicante, Spain where he continues to live today. He has exhibited all over Spain, as well as in the United States.
