VICENTE LÓPEZ
Face_value
9 October - 7 November

We belong to a global village, to a single nation, and we are beginning to share the same destiny. Money is coalescing in a way that is unstoppable. If we had to put a face on the world around us, with money as the only judge and jury, what would we look like?

Face value is a portrait of today's world, of the values used to judge us constantly, of society and its standards of measurement, the true face hidden behind the mask, the face of economic power that measures beauty, success or happiness.

These are the premises set forth by Vicente Lopez in his latest work. He begins from the Cubist idea in which an image is broken down into different perspectives and reconstructed in the mind of the viewer. But far from seeking comprehensibility by deconstructing reality the way the Cubists did, Vicente López manipulates an icon - the “face of money” - by means of large, meticulously painted canvasses, certain that this icon's ubiquity in our society will produce a result that is both aesthetic and philosophical in substance. And, as it has been for some time, as the real force behind ethics, politics and religion.
