Josep Pozo - Serie Geisha 00015

Description
Josep Pozo - Serie Geisha 00015
Mixed media - Hand signed - 2020

This work is inspired by a mythical character, the GEISHA who has been assigned a false identity for years due to the characteristics attributed to the character.
The interpretation of the GEISHA SERIES was made with a face without identity, only focusing on the makeup with the coldness and the touch of colour on her lips and the outfits that gather her hair, which enhance this image so characteristic of such a mythical figure.
I want to capture in the works the cold expression of the character, that uncertain identity that generates doubts.
I chose to do the GEISHA series because I am very interested in this figure, in the game that allows me to dress my GEISHA with those colourful dresses and play with textures to make a collage using different recycled, environmentally sustainable materials, among the materials I use are : cardboard of the egg-cups (with which I decorate the elements that carry the decoration of the hairstyle), the coffee grounds (with which I decorate some of the dresses with which I dress my characters), the paper of different newspapers, paper Kraf to internally protect the order that comes in the cardboard box (with which I work the backgrounds of the work, relaxing different textures).
The work is carried out using mixed media in acrylic and a
collage, on canvas or wooden base.
