Estartús curious insight.

We live, without a doubt, in the omnivorous red tape age, crushed or let´s even say  bored up to unbearable limits by paper work which only purpose is to “pretend that we do” or to delay getting down to business. The toneless nature of today´s world can lead us to both, absolute apathy and to spark unruliness. After the aesthetic postmodern interlude, eclecticism, in which history was literally used as a wardrobe; we have witnessed the imperial deployment of globalization which has paradoxically produced, among other things, more social-economic inequality and a dramatic homogenization in several areas such as the cultural aesthetic. There is a predominant sensation of no way out, nor the existence of an outside of the system. The planet population is completing the forward looking escape route by trying to find refuge in the metropolis. We can hardly find the right tone to put our cities into poetry the way Baudelaire or later Apollinaire did. They embarked in the antiheroic mission to leave behind the morbid and sublime as well as reactionary and pathetic romantic atmosphere. Our zone does not contribute in any way to connections or encounters.  It actually contributes towards disconnections and solitude at a time in which we seem to receive full coverage and the mass seems to take us in.            Marc Augé pointed out lucidly that post-modernism force us to walk through the no places, anonymous spaces in which recognition is not possible. One of the tasks of art may turn up to be to strive to create places in that meaningless field with the awareness that it is impossible to return to the entirety of dreams”. As Estartús Works show, it is possible to display what we would call a thoughtful nostalgia without any grudge against what is already gone.  He actually cheers up the present by rescuing a message of encouragement from the past. In the series People we can find paintings that recall London or New York with people running the Marathon.  Why do those people engage in such an exhausting activity?  Why should we run at a time in which we seem not to get anywhere?   I am under the impression that Estartús wants to move us towards a poetic humanism in which we could recover a loving contemplative temporality. We can look at paintings such as the couple holding hands in a park bench or chatting in bed, the class of the professor and the young cello player.            Estartús does not just anchors singular instants in his Works, he quite tells mini-stories ruled by seduction. A woman walks through a disserted Paris street, while she is holding her high heeled shoes; a blizzard  .  , A blizzard pushed the cyclist’s skirt up who gives away a view of her panties, there is no shortage of beautiful lightless dressed women who encourage you for a treat. This painter offers a particular view of the working world together with an erotic dynamic. He does so by drawing a shop keeper who offers some eggs in his shop, some workers in a foundry or a farmer lady who feeds the pigs.  This closeness to life experience contexts which are so far apart have a spot of deliberate anachronism.   Estartús truly shows pictures of happiness that send us back to the past, the gang with the scooter, or buying sweets and specially the image of the happy boy running with delight while currying an immense bread stick under his arm.            La Belle Epoque is not only that painting with the theatrical tableu-vivant- but the whole of those people who can walk very depressed along a Street under the rain and can also stare at the  marvelously strained female face while at her orgasmic climax  . By portraying individual scenes, Estartús wants to also capture the view of the crowd from a distance, his views, with chromatic reduction, , of people walking made me to pay attention to punctum of the shadows that never leave. It seems as if this painter was contemplating the world around himself at the beginning of the sunset.  At the precise time of the longest shadow. We cannot take refuge in this world dusk in a melancholic mood.  Estartus encourages us to recover our curiosity even though if this means to near ourselves to became a dog that furtively glances through a broken table. According to Rilke, beauty is nothing but the beginning of terror and it is us, within the quagmire of westernization, who have to recover the places, stare at things once more, give meaning to what we do or simply dare to do something even though when it means to learn from the boy holding a slingshot, as Estartús, suggests in one of his paintings. Children future could mean to recover a “starving look”, love our destiny, precisely to change it, draw our dreamt papers before the paper work makes us worthless..

ESTARTÚS- by Eduardeo Jáudenes de Salazar.

ESTARTUS´ works are a must have for any art lover who claims to be so.

He has had three pictorial styles.

1-Impressionist. He started his career as an impressionist.
2-Abstract.  He shows   how   he can capture the inner essence of things and not only   the external appearance.

3-Figurative. He proves that. abstract painters know how to draw.  
ESTARTUS is a great drawer, we are delighted with his current work, In meditation he manages to capture the loneliness of the character in an open space with a background that leaves the character isolated from the rest. We do not forget the rain or snow scenes, such as blizzard that offer impeccable and suggestive draws..

These three stages have managed to make his work both, art and sublime fascination.

He has rightly produced many of his latest works in black and white  and they very much look like sequences  from old cinema..

He embraces everyday scenes, sometimes costumbrist of the current and old society They have different registers from cinema and black novel, to photography and stamps of the time..

His paintings are of small and medium size and therefore he recovers the old idea of the window where we should lean out of.
The spectators of this exhibition have spent more time in front of the paintings than in previous exhibitions where abstraction was the protagonist..

ESTARTUS in his figurative period does not look for beauty, he finds beauty as a truth, as the truth is beauty, this is all we need to know on earth. .

The sublime can only be obtained if you pursue the intention of reaching fascination and embellishment as elements of beauty.
His painting is constant and daily work. By doing so, he can express al the art he carries inside.

He is a trained artist with extraordinary qualitys, he shows skillful and rich technique, variety of shades and an overwhelming personality.

ESTARTÚS. Por Eduardo Jáudenes de Salazar

Estartús con Eduardo Jáudenes en la exposición «People» 
La obra de ESTARTUS, es de adquisición obligada para todos los amantes del arte.

Ha pasado por tres estilos pictóricos:

1-Impresionista, con el que comenzó su carrera.
2-Abstracto, con el que nos demuestra que sabe captar la esencia secreta de las cosas y no su apariencia externa.
3-Figurativo, que acoge para demostrar que es falsa la teoría de que los pintores abstractos se hacen abstractos porque no saben dibujar. 

ESTARTUS es un gran dibujante, nos entusiasma su obra actual. En Meditación logra plasmar la soledad del personaje en un espacio abierto con un fondo que dejan a la figura aislada del resto. Sin olvidar las escenas de lluvia o nevadas como Ventisca que contienen impecables y sugerentes dibujos.

Las tres etapas han conseguido hacer de su obra arte como sublime fascinación.

Con mucho acierto la mayoría de sus últimas obras son en blanco y negro y parecen planos de una secuencia de cine antiguo.

Acogen visiones cotidianas, a veces costumbristas, de la sociedad del presente o del pasado, que toman distintos registros, desde el cine y la novela negra hasta las fotografías, o cromos de antaño.

Sus cuadros son de mediano y pequeño formato, por lo que recupera la vieja idea de ventana a la que hay que asomarse de cerca.

Los espectadores de la exposición se detienen más largo tiempo ante los cuadros que en exposiciones anteriores, donde la abstracción era protagonista.

El arte de ESTARTUS en su etapa figurativa no busca, encuentra la belleza como verdad, pues la verdad es la belleza, esto es todo lo que necesitamos saber en la tierra.

Lo sublime sólo se consigue con intención de llegar a la fascinación y embelesamiento como elementos de la belleza.

Hace de la pintura un trabajo constante, diario. Exterioriza así todo el arte que lleva dentro.

Es un artista preparado, con calidades extraordinarias, luciendo primorosa y riquísima técnica, plural variedad de matices y personalidad arrolladora.

Abordando detalles que avalan su clase. Libertades en el uso de la forma y el color que se integran perfectamente en el cuadro.

Sus cuadros son memorables, en versión de belleza indescriptible, porque siempre es difícil de encontrar palabras que reflejen el pleno logro artístico, tan raramente alcanzado.

ESTARTUS es una referencia, un artista de pies a cabeza, su obre no puede faltar en las colecciones de ninguna persona que ame el arte.
