JORGE GALINDO: POSTCARD PAINTINGS
"I like to use postcards as sketches because I am very interested in the old floral imagery which consists of unreal compositions and colours." - Jorge Galindo
Jorge Galindo’s Postcard Paintings are of monumental scale. To call them floral still lifes doesn’t do them justice. The combination of silk-screened canvases and dynamic brushstrokes builds a bridge between romantic longing and contemporary painting.
His fascination with postcards, when viewed against the backdrop of social distancing and isolation, brought about by the COVID pandemic, shines a special light on his work. What’s the meaning of postcards in a time where photos and messages are conveyed via social media, oftentimes before the sender even grasps their meaning? Doesn’t a postcard, handwritten and carefully selected, carry new significance, in a time where special occasions cannot be celebrated in the company of others? What do postcards mean when the journeys from which they greet do not take place?
