THE DOUBLE
2016 - 2019

This unique series has been created by four hands, owing its uniqueness not only to the unusual fact that the pieces have been created by four hands, but to the very nature of the artists, a photographer and a painter, and not less important, by their styles, by their specific nature, in which radical differences as well as similarities stand out.

 

Rottenberg’s photographic fantasies and Quintana’s pictorial ones contrast each other, but together they create a new reality or unreality, as you may prefer. The painter’s rapid and chaotic strokes combined with the photographer’s iconographic mystery give birth to authentically surrealist works. A strange atmosphere, with a bipolar otherness, welcomes each frame’s narrative. Both artists are possessed souls, men who dominate their obsessions (although at times we can perceive their lack of control) and they tell us that art is a serious game, but without the game there is no art.
