FERNANDO KINDELÁN


Works  
Biography


Was born in Madrid in 1964. Lives and works in Castellón.

Fernando Kindelán created special urban scenes. At the first glance, an impression dominates: the artist approaches each canvas as a pictorial challenge. He uses realism as a tool and especially treats the formal aspects of the work so that we perceive it a likely representation. In a second step, we understand that the artist looks for the exact balance between the real and the unreal, so that the viewer feels a certain sense of loneliness and not one that could be in the canvas but the one of who contemplates.

For these atmospheres, Kindelán uses different elements that alter the normal vision of things: the composition, the contrast, he changes the framing, he forces the perspectives and plays with the lights. He tries to give rise to feelings as opposed to the coldness of the photographic image in order to achieve a emotional rather than literal representation.

The urban landscapes of Kindelán have a force of their own. Each painting is for him the quest for a hidden beauty that can be discovered only after intense effort of observation. It shows a very particular vision of reality that seems suspended in time. Kindelán finally seeks to capture the urban aesthetics of silence.
