ABOUT THE ARTIST
LUIS GOMEZ MACPHERSON is a distinguished artist from the South of Spain, who currently lives and works in Santa Maria del Mar in Andalucía. He was a student under important representatives of Spanish art, such as Antonio Saura and the hyper realistic painter Antonio Lopez, who strongly influenced his artwork and style.
His work portrays in great detail everyday objects and spaces forgotten in time in a photorealistic style. In absence of a human figure, his paintings seek to abstract the functionality of the object, creating a diffuse aura of mystery in order to provoke questions in the viewer. Luis’ artworks show the artist's great technical skill when handling pictorial resources. The simplicity of his art surprises and catches the eye of anyone who looks at his paintings.
Artig Gallery is pleased to present a series of unique paintings created by Luis Gomez Macpherson made in oil on canvas or thin wood planks, all lowered in a light wood frame and signed by the artist.

IN MY OWN WORDS
“I have always liked drawing and painting, since I can remember. In the beginning, I paid more attention to topics than shapes. I worried about if this or that looked good on canvas. When I studied in the University of Fine Arts of Seville and took several other painting courses, teachers helped me to learn and work with disciplines I didn’t know. But when I found oil painting, it finally allowed me to find my inner voice.
It is precisely this technique, the one that allows me to draw insignificant objects, discover their own plasticity and turn them into an integral part of my artwork .It is partly intuition and partly contemplation the elements that guides the creation of the painting. I'm interested in the creative act itself. Apart from fashion and trends, I like to paint.”
