SORIANO'S FRIENDS

RICARDO PAU-LLOSA

Art Critic and Author

Rafael Soriano and the Poetics of Light

“Oneiric Luminism, as conceived and refined by Soriano, seeks to represent the spatiality of the unconscious, a spatiality which manifests itself by reconfiguring the relationship between solidity and emptiness, light and darkness, body and terrain. This study engages a tropological analysis of this process of reconfiguration, but suffice it at his point to call attention to the importance of representation at the deepest level of the process.”
