Emilio Gañán

Birth placePlasencia, Spain Birth date1971

It is easy to see that the painting of Emilio Gañán is descends from objective art (that continued into the Second World War in Latin America, France, Italy and Scandinavia, without forgetting the Spanish contribution of Equipo 57). This is why its geometry responds to a precise language and intention. A language created by the same box, square, grid, line and certain colours, and organized through a syntax that looks for certain tensions between these elements (the loss of symmetry and the contrast between the orthogonal and oblique), to indicate, in principal, a particular rhythm that suggests harmony, to comply with the limits of the box, to alter its interior.

Gañán has taken part in many exhibitions and art fairs all around the globe in cities like Madrid, Basilea, Lisbon, London, Buenos Aires, Bogotá and Sao Paulo. Currently, many of his pieces are included in private and public art collections such as the Junta de Extremadura, Junta de Castilla y León, Colección Norte (Cantabria), DA2 (Salamanca), Fundación El Monte (Sevilla), Colección Caja Madrid, Universidad Rey Juan Carlos, Instituto de Neurociencias de Alicante, MEIAC (Badajoz), etc.
