Pablo S. Herrero is back with this lovely collaboration with Parsec! painted somewhere in Castrogonzalo (Zamora), Spain.
Together they painted two murals; Coda (image above) makes reference to an ending part of a piece of music or a work of literature or drama that is separate from the earlier parts. It can be very ephemeral or it can be prolonged indefinitely, just like the image in question here. Coda also refers to the French term ‘Mise en Abyme’ which literally means “placed into abyss”. The most common sense of the phrase is also known as the Droste effect, describing the visual experience of standing between two mirrors, then seeing as a result an infinite reproduction of one’s image. The phrase has several other meanings, however, in the realms of the creative arts and literary theory. In Western art history, “mise en abyme” is a formal technique in which an image contains a smaller copy of itself, in a sequence appearing to recur infinitely, something Antonio Feliz Martínez aka Parsec! has been working on.
The second mural (see last image), titled Pathos, shows the image of a bird and makes according to the artists reference to that rare moment when you perceive something that provokes a particular and intense feeling, a bird diluted in colours during the course of an instant whilst crossing a forest.
