This dual Plossu/Fuentes book brings together the works of Bernard Plossu and Marcelo Fuentes, highlighting their shared interest in landscapes and cities as well as their similar artistic approach.
“Bringing together the works of Plossu and Fuentes allows us to shed light on certain questions, such as the distance between act and work in both mediums, the unequal perception of time in painting and photography. John Berger wrote that from the moment the photographic image is produced instantaneously through light, the figure is not imbued with either experience or consciousness; the photographer, it’s true, chooses the subject, but the relationship between the image and its representation is immediate, it’s not constructed, unlike the one established by the painter, whose work contains the time spent creating it.” – Salvador Albiñana
In addition to their shared interest in painting and photography, Plossu and Fuentes are both traveling artists who prefer to work with smaller formats. By bringing together their works, the exhibition allows the exploration of questions such as the relationship between action and the artwork in both mediums, as well as the differentiated perception of time between painting and photography.

Marcelo Fuentes was born in 1955 in Valencia, Spain. As a self-taught artist, he honed his skills in painting and drawing, specializing in the depiction of urban spaces. He has a particular fondness for cities like Valencia, New York, and Tokyo, where light plays a pivotal role, creating interplays of light and shadow on walls and buildings. Fuentes’ works capture these urban spaces, which may appear deserted, but unveil an enigmatic presence. The urban scenes he creates convey a distinct atmosphere, where solitude intertwines with a certain tension and mysterious beauty.
