Isidro López-Aparicio is an artist who deals in phenomenon, the stuff of reality, what and how we experience being in the world. From a simplistic perspective the exterior world is made of materials actions and objects while the interior world consists of images, thoughts and feelings. Isidro explores the role of the artist in negotiating between these two worlds, the interior and the exterior, internalising and processing the exterior and conversely externalising the interior world, giving it form in the material world.
Isidro is a multi media artist, a printmaker who moves between 2D performance, time based and installation based practices. While he is sure footed in his aesthetic control of media and meticulously attentive to the visual detail, the work is always mdirected beyond the aesthetic. The aesthetic is a tool, a vehicle to access relationships between the world as phenomenon and the conventions of language, between the art and the viewer and inexorably to take the viewer to a point of contemplating the nature of being and the social constructs and conventions we use to organise and manage being in the world. For this reason the apparently disparate conceptual and visual forms and projects that López-Aparicio has engaged in, on further enquiry, coalesce into a coherent body of work, unified by the conceptual thread of a consistent and ernest level of penetrating enquiry.
