Simco Drops is pleased to present Communal Living and Obsession by Cesc Abad, the artist's first NFT and print releases. The prints depict animals and objects in dream-like settings, both from which the artist sources inspiration:
Communal Living: "When Diderot described Chardin's work, “Glass of Water and Chocolatier”, circa 1760, he did so praising the artist's mastery in achieving a composition that emphasized the transparency of the water inside the glass, and the gloss of the jar's varnish. He described it at the same time as a living nature, through which the air circulates around objects. Therefore we can speak of truthfulness and an excellent excuse to rehearse the practice of painting, since the artist learned from life, from the copy of objects that he could place at his free will. This concept of living nature is what the artist Cesc Abad tries to show when we look at works such as “Communal Living”, in which animals are the support of the elements that make up this still life. On the back of a hybrid between a sheep and a wolf, living beings are placed, some of them looking at the viewer, to provoke a feeling of strangeness and a new
interpretation of the genre."
Obsession: "The use of vases in his paintings is one of the essential elements in still lifes. Precisely these elements show us how the oldest technology, that of ceramics, has remained unchanged over the centuries, and they continue to be essential pieces in our daily lives, which allows the artist to locate the human presence in the work. The appearance of the cat, as a support for the vase, gives the work an aspect that moves between the dystopian and the dreamlike, maximized by the animal's fixed gaze on an insect."
