Xavier Ferrer. Barcelona, 1965. One of the things that I'm able to say with conviction is "painting makes me feel living...". Describe which is the reason that leads me to paint and what I feel when I do that, is something related with a vital need that place me close to myself. I feel that a piece needs me and I need it, a force at the same time that tangible, everlasting. This makes about the creative instant my unique, intimate, and own space. This force has been near to me since have use of reason. It opens me paths. When I explore them, I meet the forms, the color and the light. The technique happens surprisingly with time, enriches the path and allows day to day to approach me more to an expression that identifies this force. Although at the beginning, in my works the technique used was the traditional one, I believe that fortunately about 10 years ago the technique happened unexpectedly digital. Certainly, a thing that I have not yet said to you, by profession I have not dedicated to the arts. Ive a master degree in computer science, thus I have worked in that for more than 15 years...Never I have been too much near of the academic world of the arts, but I have drunk of many inspiration sources from ancient and actual artists, even from my father who also lives the art in a very introspective way.If you prefer, you can say Im an autodidact about art, yes, I also could think so, cause nobody said me which was the way, so I chose the way that take me nearest to all those feelings I told you before. I make art and many of my pieces of art are created and painted digitally. I merge senses and technology to elevate a form of self-expression. I don't care if someone thinks that my pieces are out of the art because the tools I use to create them, I usually tend to ignore that fact. As someone said, "A good artist is expressing something that touches a lot of people. What kind of tools he is using to achieve this effect should be totally out of the discussion. Who cares?
