We asked some of our curators, artists, friends and collaborators to choose their favorites from 2012. Just one image from another author which was specially meaningful for them. The selection was hard. Annually an average person sees more than a million images. The photographers and curators many more. Thereby we spotlight the photographs in this edition as true gems, unique moments, compositions and stories that deserve to last.

OM Padmosnisa Vimale Hum Phet

 

Josep Mª Linares (Barcelona, Spain) makes photos and media art. By exploring the concept of landscape in a nostalgic way, Linares investigates the dynamics of landscape, including the manipulation of its effects and the limits of spectacle based on our assumptions of what landscape means to us. Rather than presenting a factual reality, an illusion is fabricated to conjure the realms of our imagination.

His photos doesn’t reference recognisable form. The results are deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted. In a search for new methods to ‘read the city’, he focuses on the idea of ‘public space’ and more specifically on spaces where anyone can do anything at any given moment: the non-private space, the non-privately owned space, space that is economically uninteresting.

His works are often about contact with architecture and basic living elements. Energy (heat, light, water), space and landscape are examined in less obvious ways and sometimes developed in absurd ways. By applying abstraction, he creates intense personal moments masterfully created by means of rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer round and round in circles.

His works establish a link between the landscape’s reality and that imagined by its conceiver. These works focus on concrete questions that determine our existence. Josep Mª Linares currently lives and works in Barcelona.
