The paintings of Angel Muriel, revolves around the concept of duality, in which the dual life - death becomes a relief and almost unique role. Eros and Thanatos are omnipresent in his work, appearing first, as one would expect in the background of each and every one of his performances.
I say "performances" because the work of A. Muriel is pure theater, theater suprarrealista like the nonsense of multiprotagonistas that fill the scene and strike us as "creatures of the underworld". Polymorphic structure, pictorial reliefs are coated very pronounced. And they all seem engaged in a pointless game of simultaneous attraction and repulsion.
This "amalgamation", with its accented and defined psychological traits, we are immersed in their own reality. A reality that Muriel resolved in a burlesque representation (the mockery of the drama), but that paradoxically has been executed in a dramatic and stark. I refer not only to the apparent reality of the composition, but the reality of the demiurge, a demiurgy governed by the Fates, whose concept is closer to Stuart Mill that of the Gnostics and Neoplatonists.
These beings captives of their own future, running from his past sensitive foreseeable future does not unfold in a simple scene, but it seem rather do it in a sort of "hallucination" from a cosmogony spectral vision that only becomes recognizable within the ideology of emotions.
And shows him as a "shock or organic agitation" that moves or happens dynamically in time, from a "before" in progression to an "after", as if it were a magnetoscópica a film screening, in which each of his paintings, each of their performances intratiempo act as frames of which are dynamic expressions of a "present moment", ephemeral, fleeting transitive and ready to vanish like a ghostly presence in the shifting boundaries of life and time .
Anyone who knows Angel Muriel knows that the composition of his works has an active genesis. It is based on a dynamic and changing as we have said, sometimes progressive and sometimes alternative where his "creatures" grow and mature widely changing its appearance and anatomy until "ending in themselves," just to emancipate the artist, in an action that would qualify as "animated metamorphosis".
At first glance, we see in these compositions front ordination or provision. And I wonder what aspect presented these "polymorphous" seen from behind? Would the logic is appropriate for your front anatomical profile?. Probably that vision would be very different, I think it could lead to a new surreality paradoxically, little by fourth dimension, due to this that the three known, already live fantastically on the images of his paintings. They are, therefore, and in a way hipercúbicas but not from the point of view of geometry, mathematics or quantum physics, but A. Muriel unfolds with great intuition all bodily tissue structural content of their characters, and the naked showing us not all angles, but all tight corners.
This is undoubtedly where resides the eroticism of his compositions, incurring the fact that the purpose of the eroticism of his compositions, incurring the fact that the purpose of eroticism is ultimately all caches desecretar the flesh and psyche.
Sinful at will, which is why the historical weight of some other religion is being co-starred in his painting. Because after all is not lost in the work of Muriel, considering that everything has to erotic ecstasy.
But is deeply respectful of aesthetic tradition, try to relax visually if they know it, and find their little scandals hide a relationship chromatic and compositional details which belongs to the most elegant pictorial refinement of Flemish painting or contrast are shown next Baroque painting to be provided by a more dramatic atmosphere or having been raised with a sense equipped naturalistic or mystical meanings.
A work in which the author's own introspective exploration, the universe ideático and methods of its development, summarize the highlights and important issues which must be added the great wealth of artistic resources and pictorial displays and boasts in its execution.
