Aarón Sanromán (1985, Vigo) defines his artistic production with a hyper-realistic aesthetic about water and its capacity for transformation, mixing sculpture and painting with a clear scenographic component. Also, his audiovisual training allows him to use multidisciplinary techniques.
His projects reproduce water as an element of life, fluidity and something that surrounds us in our day to day life. But water can also be a danger, source of anguish and frustrations as in its installation Spring in which the water overflows everything and comes out through the cracks in the walls. Time stops to provoke reflection and contemplation of what is being witnessed, in contrast to the speed at which we are subjected due to technological progress, its omnipresence and omnipotence. The fragility of a digital system, which as if it were a filter, mediates between us and the world, a reality that we live through intermediaries.
Sanromán captures seconds that he turns into sculptures, with constantly evolving materials and research to improve the technique and obtain the most realistic result possible. If there is something that flows, moves and changes according to the container, it is the liquid matter, but Sanromán juxtaposes the liquidity of the water making it immobile, turning his works into something timeless.
