Javier Caraballo

Visual Polyphony

The masterpieces of art history are important for their technical quality, aesthetics and symbolic content, and have served as inspiration for several generations, remaining in the retina of observers to relive the visual pleasure they gave them, or to provoke reflections on art, events and life. Caraballo’s art is therefore based on works that are recognized and valued for their content and innovation. But the artist not only appropriates the paintings of the great masters but also those of the children who are really the focal points of his work. Their presence, exercising the role of painters who intervene or copy the paintings that Caraballo has “taken over”, gives his works an air of innocence and spontaneity characteristic of childish acts, but it is also a reminder that the human body is the contour, support and vehicle of our personal and collective experience.
