Oil on board.

'Maria Carbonell knows the enigma, she works with it daily, and from this physical work, corresponding to the hand that traces the lines, in turn comes the reflection and the question facing the image it constructs. An enigma which appears to be solved in her collages and sketches, showing us spaces and places of an impossible reality. A play of figures and objects – boxes in this case – that reveal property itself and the sense of the image, like a game being played out, and evoking its capacity to transfigure, questioning the reality held within the frames and limits of her paintings and graphic works. In this way the deception, the fake, is resounding. It is not the reality enclosed within Carbonell's work, but the appearance as a new reality that constantly invokes. The image in terms of appearance is as such converted into something real, transcending the media, in order to offer us in a visible form the enigma of its own reality.' - Josep Tornero Read less
