“A poet’s hope: to be, like some valley cheese, local, but prized elsewhere.”

  1. H. Auden

 

“Everything was already, everything returns once more, and the gift of recognition is our only guide.”

Osip Mandelstam

 

“To think that we could have had an ordinary family life with its bickering, broken hearts and divorce suits! There are people in this world so crazy as not to realize that is normal human existence of the kind everybody should aim at. What wouldn’t we have given for such ordinary heartbreaks! . . . He was lucky. Just as he was also lucky not to survive till the next wave of arrests and die in his bed or hospital ward in Chukhloma or some other such...

Quoting textual words of his beloved Joan Brossa, "Towards poetry, not only does the language go away". Borrell plays with the verses of Artur Rimbaub and the romantic tones. Paul dels Prats, herds ... once again nature again becomes the undisputed protagonist of the painting piece of Borell. The dyes employed do not hide or hide any mystery beyond painting. Again, the painter uses pure colors, the simplicity is based on the choice of primary or secondary, these have not been roasted, but applied by means of velours and transparencies, overlapping each other, give depth to the painting of Borell. The light, the tones, are the result of the spontaneity of the painter, who understands painting, perhaps as a phenomenon typical of nature.

Music, painting or poetry is not something that goes unnoticed in the work of Borrell. As the artist conceives, they need to get involved with the life and history of each individual and play a very significant role in our temperament. And, next, shades, laughs at the sensual lips. In the bumps or penitent passions. Verses by the poet Arthur Rimband Borrells performs with abstraction and passionate colors. One way to suggest the most direct record. This abstraction takes us into the world of Borrell, full of emotions embodied in his artistic compositions.

The perception in the opening in this piece reminds us of the immensity of the sea. Nature, the central axis of many of Borell's works, is explained through color. A clear example in which color is no longer manifested as an attribute or accident but becomes the category of subject and substance. The romantic tones used evoke a sense of depth and at the same time clarity, again returned to the binomial presence and absence. Works of this nature evoke us in a state where we contemplate an apparently static but full of movement that seems to escape.

Under the umbrellas of opening and overflowing there are works that are defined by a movement of openness towards nature and its resonances. In the work of Alfons Borrell we can find the constant struggle over desire and terror, where they always get together as an element of our existence. Characterized by these attributes, Borrell states that the material exceeds the limits that the fabric and paper impose. It is this way how their works exemplify the pictorial freedom in their immensity.

Alfons Borrell is possibly one of the last examples of painters who let themselves be guided by the intuition of painting in our country. An example of this is pictures like this that do not seek any specific explanation, but anyone can extract their own. The red, blue and black, colors that can evoke very different concepts, opposite poles that unite them with a translucent sea. A sea that becomes a sky that plays with the minucios of a white that remind us of the clarisas of a rainy day. The frankness of the painter teaches us that nothing is true, nothing is definitive.

The course of Borrell's work continues with the idea of ​​playing with the limits of pictorial elements. The appearance of geometric shapes takes on the ambivalence of presence and absence, breaking with the emptiness of the limits. This manifestation marks a significant constant in the works of Borrell and refers us to the notion of a horizon. Experimenting the boundaries and rectangular shapes, welcome the opposites. The use of collage technique conceals everything that is previously visible before being hidden. It becomes the revelation of a mystery.
