Gabriel de la Mora, 1968

For Gabriel de la Mora the artwork already exists before the artist, and therefore it is not his role to either create or destroy, but merely to transform. Worn soles of shoes, damaged photographs, matchboxes and found paintings are passed through a process of pentimento – of reworking, erasing and altering – generating palimpsest works that convey the effects of the passage of time, natural elements and histories of use; galvanising these narratives through a regulated surface.
