Formalities is a series which plays with the style of structured, formal portraits of times gone by, offsetting the carefully modeled and concrete intentions of these sittings with a hint of the unexpected. Where once a staged photograph was to be a record of a major event or life moment, Formalities only gives us a part of the story. The subjects may have been sitting in wait for a long time, but now their stories have changed, as if the modern world has caught up with them while they were waiting to be a document of their own pasts.
O objetivo da série ‘Flower Power’ é desmistificar a imagem perigosa e agressiva criada em torno dos cães da raça Pit Bull:
"I realized pit bulls were always portrayed in very urban, gritty photographs. The imagery associated with these dogs is often harsh, very contrasted, conveying the idea of them being tough. In my opinion, this feeds the myth that these dogs are dormant psychopaths. So I decided to take the other route and portray them like hippies, soft fairy-tale-inspired characters, feminine and dreamy. The idea of Flower Power blossomed."
"Spanish artist Oscar Sancho Nin loves the color black for its magic and mystery, and because it reminds him of fellow countryman Goya’s black paintings, a major influence. Without black there would be no light which is one of the striking qualities of Oscar’s portraits, in which he brings together abstraction and the figurative"
Artists are these men and women who are capable as everyone to perceive the Reality, but they have an unusual capacity to express it. Their perception of reality helps us enrich our own perception. That’s why they are maybe necessary. There are artists along History that decorates our lives, as IKEA, with an enveloping art that leads us to the sweetest geographies of our existences. There are another artists that open us a door to dark and unexplored territories, breaking the fears,
facing the unknown and showing some of its sides. They expand our freedom.
In this list of pioneer artists, lucid minds and breakers we could mention Goya, Picasso, Duchamp,
Baselitz, Kafka, Stravinsky, Diaghlev, Brecht or Gaudí, so to mention, not casually, some of them.
His only certainties are his doubts and his big capital, his authenticity. Oscar shows us a work which is painfully honest, intuitive, intelligent and essential.
