Far de la Mola welcomes paintings of Pedro María Asensio's 'Oceà interior'

The Formentera Office of Culture is pleased to announce that 5 October 2022 to 25 March 2023, Far de la Mola Cultural and Educational Space will host "Oceà interior" by artist Pedro María Asensio.

This new exhibition offers visitors a peek into the trajectory of the visual artist. Asensio draws an analogy between the artist and the lighthouse keeper, both of whom are dedicated to the work of safeguarding in solitude. "Through his creations, the artist shares with spectators his aesthetic, intellectual and spiritual reflections; he takes a stand against the post-modern alienation that tends to dehumanise", asserts Asensio. The paintings of "Oceà interior" enter into conceptual and geometric dialogue with the exhibition space and evoke the marine environment that ties back into the inner universe of the lighthouse keeper.

Born in Cuenca, Asensio has been influenced by the Museum of Spanish Abstract Art and its most representative artists. A resident of Eivissa since the seventies, he has developed most of his artistic career on the island. His trajectory also includes an educational facet, and for six years Asensio was director of the Can Misses primary school there. The previous decade has found Asensio working between a studio on Eivissa and others in Cuenca and Madrid. Asensio's paintings, sculptures, engravings, videos and installations have been exhibited in various countries.

From very early on, the artist cast his artistic gaze toward two trajectories which, though seemingly different, often converge: a rationalist tendency in the tradition of abstract expressionists' search for purity, and another more social and less abstract tendency positing human beings and their circumstance as objects of expression.
