Pedro Zamora

Barcelona, Spain, 1978

Painting without painting is the paradoxical synthesis of a work in which discarded cardboard and books become the main raw material.

Manuel Fontán del Junco -Fundación Juan March- writes:

                    As an artist, Pedro Zamora has applied to painting, which traditionally belongs to the art of putting, the art of removing, typical of sculpture. (It is possible that this is due to his other vocation that participates in both arts: architecture). So his work is that of a kind of radical contemplative ascetic….

His desire to paint without painting, with almost no art (and with almost no painter); to make a work in which he “does not paint anything”, without being almost noticed; of lavishing himself with what nobody wants, of making art almost without doing it; ... all this makes him almost immune to the artist's fear that his work will not remain, because he assumes that this is almost nothing, that it has been done without "ulterior motives" and that, in the end, only what has been destroyed can be destroyed. It has been built and that is why the art that is most alive is the one that cannot be killed because it plays dead itself.
