Miguel Torner de Semir

Miguel Torner de Semir born 1938 Spain. Torner is a painter who cultivates hybrid evocative paintings. He aspires to bridge between the past and the present. Yet his work is primarily personal and autonomous, Torner uses many different materials like sand, pieces of cloth, paper with thick layers of paint, to dramatize his work. The figures, clothing and background explode, becoming a chaos of shapes and objects, windows open showing another world outside, then faces appear filled with sweetness, this has always been his main identity. Torner outlines the silhouettes of the main elements in each of his compositions with strong precise black lines giving a sharp profile to his kings and princesses. Styles that are reminiscent of Gothic stained-glass.
