Javier Úbeda Almería, 1962
Extracting, according to the artist, the parts that are left of him, is It makes visible the way that this moment already existed inside this block.
From an early age he seeks to find himself through the paths of artistic creation.
Without knowing the goal nor the path itself, with just eight years of age and on the basis of the continuous observation of the agricultural world, it begins to plant in the grooves that the land was left to make, objects rejected by the industries like : doors of cars, chairs, irons, wooden doors, old furniture, etc.
After the experience lived in this childhood game, he discovers that there is what he calls “the blog”, regardless of the material of whatever, and that extracting, according to the artist, the parts that are left of him, is It makes visible the way that this moment already existed inside this block.
Being this the greatest rigor of his creative life, that is why he himself says “that having so present denies the power to model, whether it be mud or any material susceptible to this”.
