Plastic Skin, 2018
Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone, allow yourself to be one with a frozen moment in time and contemplate childhood, carefree walks, playful escapades, content places and tender love encounters. Events in a room are events in space, you are never really alone, always circled by memories, reasons and choices. But the greater weapon against stress is your ability to choose one thought over another, an immediate reaction to shift to a better state of mind.
His drawings are like meditation, Jose Higuera paints exactly that, delicate moments of an uplifting reality. A new reflection of old matters and events comes as a salvation or as a glue that holds together all your scattered pieces. Every oil painting is a continuous search for happiness, soulful and humane situations. The inspiration comes always uninvited, just by overlooking this complex world and seeking beauty in simple and unnoticed characteristics of life.This artist has a unique way of giving meaning to pictures long forgotten, giving life to shadows that follow us and bringing a sudden light like a reminder that each time we stop another reality precedes us. Like a symmetrical angel, he sets the scene for rare thrills, where the past overlaps instantly the present and in reversal. Times are instances, configuring when you can go to your next stop, but in this case they are only excuses to replace things already broken.
