Memento mori (remember you will die) is an exhibition of drawings which reflects about the perception of reality and its ephemeral nature, recreating with modern techniques still life’s and vanities, a pictorial genre that goes back to antiquity and had its heyday during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
The Photographic Hyperrealism of these drawings, made in 2014, leads us to question between the real and the false, the true and simulated, what we believe to see and what we really see.
Exhibition of 12 drawings at the Museo Lázaro Galdiano, Madrid, Spain from the 21of may till 28 september 2015
