Jorge Perianes


We see with the brain, not the eyes. This is why it is important to analyze in what the base that the brain uses to invent elements, which motors does it use, and what is the why and how of the way it interprets reality. These questions, distinctive of science, are addressed by Perianes from the artistic practice, searching for a possible edification and a positive discourse, in which he combines classic and poetic forms, distant symbols (in aspect) to seek new meanings or “outlets” to the world.

Knowing that all of our perceptions are illusory, that reality is illusory, handling signs and symbols continues being pertinent and it is nature where Perianes often recurs to find the root of our symbology and where he finds unexpected connections and concretions that invite to reflect about artificiality, mental reconstruction, reification, the momentary and the passing as elements to judge reality.

Jorge Perianes has participated in numerous exhibitions, recently in Max Estrella, Museo Barjola (Gijón), in 2015 in Centro de Arte Contemporanea Graça Morais (Bragança), and last year at CEE Montevideo, and Horno de la Ciudadela (Pamplona).
