The theme of the carousels is motivated by a philosophy of life.
I paint these works with the innocence and purity of when I was a little kid. A kid who see life with joy and hope, and who admire and respect his parents and his family, a kid who share with his friends funny moments , games and the first discoveries of life.
That reason is why the memories of the Fairs of the small towns of Catalonia: Artés, Horta, Banyoles, Olot, Caldes …) are more important to me, that the fact of painting a recognized fair. I prefer that when the spectators see a Fair- Carousel painting, they don’t tell me that it is the Carousel of Paris, or Barcelona, or another important and well-known city, but they are moved by remembering the fairs they attended, and that they also were kids and they did not lose the desire of living and the hope and faith in people and life.
There are paintings in which there is a single and big carousel, in an undetermined path, the infinite, although in it we can perceived that at the end there is life.
In other paintings the fair is more complete, with more elements and where people can choose their destination.
Being collected, Congratulation!
