Josep Cisquella’s work is concerned with the illusory properties of painting. It is a subject steeped in tradition, with antecedents extending from ancient Hellenic art toseventeenth-century trompe l’oeil to the more recent photorealistic work of Richard Estes and his contemporaries. Cisquella, however, approaches this estimable territory from a perspective that isaltogether new. Building on the foundations erected by great artists before him, he finds fresh ways to marvel at a painting’s capacity to create realities. Cisquella uses the two dimensional shadow toeither echo or imply the existence of a real, three dimensional form. In doing so, he thrusts the subject of the painting into the viewers actual space, facing us to engage with his work in a veryvisceral, very real way. These are canvases that speak to the beauty of details; preserving moments that, in real life, are all too ephemeral. For that reason, and for the care he takes in renderingthese quiet scenes, Josep Cisquella’s work amounts to a whole–hearted celebration of painting itself.
