Xavier Rodés (@xavier-rodes)
Xavier Rodés (1971) was born in Barcelona, Catalonia (Spain). The ground-breaking way to treat the light, the precision of the drawing and the original choice of themes, are particularly highlighted in his works. Inspite of being a figurative artist, his paintings suggest non-conventional ideas, as he focuses on the composition, the chromatic harmony and other plastic features, rather than the mere description.
Since 1996 he exhibits his works mostly at SALA PARÉS in Barcelona and ANSORENA Gallery in Madrid. His paintings are present in many private and public collections around the word: USA, France, Switzerland, Argentina.

I started taking photographs when I discovered the possibility of the sensitive emulsion of film to be treated as a canvas of a painting. It can be used as a surface to express different realities without employing painting techniques. For me it was the perfect opportunity to create images uncontrolled, where the surprise is a part of the game. Double exposures, colour filters, masks or chemical treatments are some of the techniques used to juxtapose views, propose new architectures or unbalanced perceptions of daily life, captured with SLR cameras and various lomography devices.
