José Ramón Amondarain

San Sebastián, 1964


José Ramón Amondarain is an artist faithful to painting whose work is a constant reflection on the concept of copy and original. With a thorough knowledge of the history of art, he borrows works of other artists, reworking them, to establish relationships and generate new readings in a constant search to expand the possibilities of interpretation.
The drawings presented in Drawing Room are, in fact, photographs as they are made with light and analog techniques of photographic development although the generated image is “drawn” by the artist with a small flashlight in a process of little control over the final result since any variation in the intensity or direction of the light causes different results than those sought.
