- JAUME GENOVART LLOPIS (Barcelona, 1941 - 1994)
Grandson of a linotype writer and son of a bookseller, he was educated in a world of writing and a passion for graphics, calligraphy and landscape, elements that are characteristic of his work.
Having begun Arts and Crafts and Economic Sciences, he abandoned them in order to devote himself to painting, to which he devoted himself unconditionally.
Self-taught, he began his artistic expression around 1963. His style gradually assimilated expressionist and surrealistic influences, from which he evolved into a lyrical abstraction of calligraphic gestures and dynamic, rhythmic, arabesque rhythms. , letters and linear figures in colorful flat inks with a musical effect more dependent on the spontaneity of the stroke than on the color itself, a plastic ideation that characterizes his work.
From 1972 his first exhibition in Barcelona regularly exhibited in the most prestigious halls of Spain and Germany. Passionate about space and landscape, he went through a period of cosmic painting, astronomical and spatial landscapes full of aggression and violence ("Too much violence," Fernando Zóbel told him). He then began to collaborate regularly with the press and cover covers for various publications and books.
Towards the end of the sixties began the most important stage in terms of exhibitions. He has participated in numerous international exhibitions in several European countries, America and Asia.
From 1980, Jaume Genovart approached a more classic landscape. It was then that writing strengthened its value and became the determining element in his work.
Genovart's bright originality in treating a technique as difficult as painting on printed paper (old documents, staves) is characteristic of Genovart.
He represented Spain at the Sao Paulo Biennial, Rijeka, the New Delhi Triennial and Alexandria.
His paintings and unreal landscapes are easily recognized by his gesture and color, as well as by the signs, letters and figures.
