El cofre

D'Amen's work is the result of a very subtle conceptual layers going overlapping each other to reach a culmination of a remarkable complexity. The first instance is the portrait of one of the characters inspired in those that populate the canvases of the seventeenth-century European masters such as Rembrandt and Velázquez. The second layer is a transparent texture that deforms, fuses and confuses the traits of this character as if it was presented behind a frosted glass, translucent. The third layer is a black plane entering either from one side of the perimeter of the canvas or installed into a key site for the sole purpose of covering part of the face of the character. The last layer is a blackish atmosphere that unites all transforming the portrait into a ominous apparition. These layers appear systematically making the portrait something increasingly impossible from a scholarly point of view and creating a strange feeling that keeps us hopelessly away  from the character in an unspeakable distance, a distance that, as Lacan would say, belongs to that place where only the dead and the gods speak, a place that is to us both a mystery and a privilege. That place of obscurity where lies the deeper understanding. And it is clearly a privilege to be in that space provided by D'Amen, who just by deforming these layers, these layers that hide parts of faces, allows us to decipher the contents of the hidden portrait, the true portrait that is deep, psychological and perhaps a mirror of ourselves.
