The new work by Paco Pomet, an artist born and based in Granada, Spain, will boggle the mind in a way that only art can. A series of black and white paintings that have been sliced with surreal bits of color, these creations are as impressive as his previous ones from last year and a couple of years before that.
From fiery explosions in the middle of a winding river to bubblegum-like skies and dissected cars with red midsections, the new work by Paco Pomet embraces a world full of mystery and magic. In a way, the paintings might bring to mind the 1998 movie 'Pleasantville,' yet the introduction of color has a more sinister vibe than a promising one. Instead of liberation, there appears to be oppression.
