“Taurina” re-purposes the subject of “Tauromàquia” to bring a powerful set of images that explore our relationship with art and the act of creating art. The subject pivots on the interaction between body, movement, space and the visual imagery that Bullfighting creates for the viewers. Bullfighting on its own is ocassionally considered an art where those elements combine to bring a stronger whole, where all of them co-exist in a dance to bring what many consider a live masterpiece performed. The series uses this concept to also explore the parallels between the Bullfighter and the Artist, who expose themselves to the public through their art or performance, risking their lives to obtain failure or glory as a result of their work. This piece is not an homage to the brutality of the act, but rather an exploration of the visual aesthetics that surround this practice.
