Description of the artwork «La Malvarrosa»

- Homage to the creativity of the Valencian people, both in its gastronomic side, the clotxina, the Valencian paella, with its iconographic elements, such as the trivet, the wood-fired paella pans of the cuinera, as well as in one of its most significant elements of its craftsmanship, the Valencian tile.
Subrealism allows to express in all its dimension the combination of compositional elements in a free way. In this work all the iconography and stills of our landscape and people are combined. The sea, the beach, the rice, the tile, the light, the color. Another graphic element expressed is the awning. The awning for the Valencian is the representation of the shadow, the shade, so loaded with meanings: relax, festive enjoyment, meetings around a good paella, the afternoon, or a party among friends. In short, the enjoyment of the Valencian people's life. Gastronomy, art, Mediterranean sea, light and color.
