THE BIO

It has been a long time that Albert Vergés works with artistic activities. He does not remember what led him to scribble a white canvas for the first time. But he knows how he wanted and needed to make it. Then he has been growing; as well his art has been improving for more than 20 years. The artist keeps using the binary code in order to show the world complexity, through simplifying all written declarations or numeric construction for a succession of zeros and ones.

 

The artist codifies words and numbers known for everybody to force the spectator follows the opposite way of returning the usual meanings to the words and numbers. The artist shows these ideas through the paintings in which the color, the material, and the space treatment have an especial style. In the end, he comes with an amazing masterwork! According to Vergés, decoding the painting is one of the most difficult tasks. ¨Of course I can explain my intentions as a creator, but I can just explain the results as a spectator. The problem is that we have few words to explain the art`s happenings, so I think the words should become signs. I believe we should create a global language of signs in order to talk about art, as well the Mathematics does with abstracts concepts. What´s the appropriate word to explain the sensations of dying for a painting, a new sculpture or a better movie? In fact, you can just answer this question and decode securely the art`s world, if you introduce new concepts and redefine the existing words.¨
