*1963 Calella/Barcelona – lives in Calella
In his material pictures, Jordi Alcaraz uses free forms to transport the multi-layered possibilities of perceiving reality. He works with images, words, and various materials, especially glass, mirrors, metal, stone, wood, paint, and books. Alcaraz, who is not only a painter but a writer as well, has published several limited-edition books. As a young artist, he spent time in the museums of Barcelona studying Romanesque paintings, sculptures by Catalonian artists, and the works of his predecessors: Joan Miró, Salvador Dalí, Antoni Tàpies, and Eduardo Chillida.
