Have you ever wondered what lies behind someone's smile? This June, Lazarides will be welcoming Juan Miguel Palacios for his debut London solo-exhibition which will explore the human face and its range of emotions.

 

Palacios' artwork uncovers the emotions beneath a happy face, to the fatigue and pain that is produced by day-to-day experiences, the artist identifies these life experiences as 'wounds'. Using a woman's face as a base Juan Miguel investigates the variety of hidden emotions within his art.

 

Drywall and a transparent vinyl are used instead of canvases which creates a depth within the painting. It is as if the vinyl is the woman's identity but the viewer is able to look through to see their interior and subsequently, their true feelings. The mix of emotions generates a feeling of uncertainity, leaving the viewer to cast their final opinions on what the subject is feeling.

 

"A common denominator of the big cities we live in, such as New York or London, is the racial and cultural diversity. Dynamic cities, full of life that attract and welcome millions of different people. Fascinating cities, offering all kinds of comforts, luxuries, and pleasures but at the same time can be extremely individualist and solitary where very few people manage to realise their dreams. An amalgam of apparently happy and blissful faces that after a closer inspection reveal an expression of fatigue and pain, produced by day-to-day experiences" – Juan Miguel Palacios

Juan Miguel Palacios, "WOUNDED" solo show at Lazarides Gallery Rathbone

Empathy is hard to get by these days, especially if you live in the city. Take Los Angeles for instance, one of the biggest city in the US; a budding metropolis — where three million people (including myself) live.

Juan Miguel Palacios Wounded

Palacios has always been fascinated by the human face and it’s gestural language because of its communicative character and beauty.
