A piece of Luis Royo exceptional in its measurements, its treatment and the support of a paper made by hand. It belongs to the so recognizable and personal fantasy genre of Luis Royo, where the heroine, sufficient and defiant, reigns in the environment and becomes the emblem of feminine strength. And to which is added the overflowing and provocative eroticism of a large part of his work. We have made an exception in the collection "Dreaming in the labyrinth", placing this piece that is published but that finishes with a flourish the theme of the selection.

 

"Under the words, when we go up the paper and get lost in the blank page when flying from the mouth of the pundits that are opposite but slip on our skin without any reaches penetrate our ears, or when a blurred cloud puts us in front of the eyes, many times, we're not wanting to forbidden places "

Luis Royo

 

Fantastic art, also known as imaginative realism, distinguishes itself from other art forms by portraying ancient myths and legends, modern day fantasies in the form of misterious interventions, the imagination, the dream state, the grotesque, visions, and the “uncanny” as common everyday elements. While the widespread prevalence of imaginative realism is relatively recent in popular culture, this genre is a staple in art history, beginning with the rise of romanticism in the second half of the eighteenth century as artists began to present imaginative imagery for narrative and emotional impact, rather than allegorical or historical meaning. At the Edge is the first exhibition to place this genre in its correct art-historical context as an evolution of the great realist painters of the past.
