Ignacio addresses the potential of painting as a material. His artworks present the painting from its tactile, sensory and virtual dimension; where the dialogue between the painting, the frame and the canvas is direct, suppressing the formal obligations in that relation.
"My art is born from a process of transformation of the paint. I am interested in the constant change and movement of the human condition, and materialise it through my art. I create skins of paintings, which I wait until they dry before I fold them and give them life. I do not Paint over the canvas, it is all paint. The fundamento f my work its not material but spiritual. It is an anaology to the human body, where metaphorically the painting is the skin, the beater is the skeleton, and the work is the spirit.” – Igancio Muv
