Unfinished panel, Golucho
Portrait of Insomnia, Golucho
Golucho is a Spanish painter I have recently discovered and know precious little about except what I can get from simply contemplating these amazing works. New Realism is not really new of course except that it has come to be an umbrella term for contemporary painters that are taking observation into their art making with extra rigor and discipline. The results are in the case of Golucho, stunning as well as disturbing at times. There is much more than simple mastery of technique here but a deep and meaningful connection with his subject-matter that is nothing short of direct evidence of a mystical encounter that has resulted from sheer stubbornness.
