Juan Perdiguero is an native from Madrid, Spain. He is an active mixed media artist who brings together concepts of photography, drawing, painting and printmaking into his work. Juan Perdiguero has exhibited nationally and internationally in numerous one person and group exhibitions at commercial galleries, alternative Art spaces and museums. His work is being represented by several galleries in United States and in Spain. His art has been extensively reviewed by art publications and newspapers.
He also has an wide background in Painting Conservation, a field where he has worked for the last fifteen years. He has been involved in Art Conservation and Restoration projects for galleries, museums and private collectors in the United States and abroad.
In his teaching he brings together elements of classicism and tradition with contemporary experimental approaches to image making.
My work is mixed media on photographic emulsion. I consider my paintings to be drawings, where chiaroscuro plays a predominant role and where color acts a secondary element, thus giving the work an ambiguous pictorial sense. Above all, I look for simplicity and balance. I manipulate the technical borders between media as a way to attract, seduce and confront the viewer. The emotional impact of my images communicate a profound, personal psychological reality of the time I am living.
My work is deeply rooted in figuration, coming from the tradition of the Spanish Baroque School. I am constantly pushing the conceptual sources of this tradition and its historical influence on my art by stretching the limits of its boundaries, and extending static notions of painting and drawing to merge them with photography. As a result of this, my images are classical in appearance but strongly contemporary in the way they are conceptualized and rendered.
