Joan Saló

 

''The canvas designs a network of meanings produced from
primary forms that are repeated without beginning or end, and that speak to us of the passage of time. The work speaks of time and rhythm, of the relations between the hand and the brain, thereby creating a veritable code, a “mental map”.
