The Cartagena artist Paco Ñíguez, returns to Mazarrón with a series of paintings starring the human figure. The exhibition ‘The infinite look’ opens this Friday from 8 pm at Casas Consistoriales de Mazarrón with free admission. The exhibition will be opened by the Mayor of Mazarrón, Gaspar Miras, the Councillor for Culture, Ginés Campillo, and the author himself.

In this exhibition, Ñíguez shows faces of strong visual impact because they emerge, by contrast, from backgrounds with varying degrees of abstraction and sharpness, as if those faces emerged from the past or from a dream, which gives rise to works endowed with a strong dream component. Corresponding to this mode of representation, the expressions of the characters are of a classic serenity reminiscent of the statuary of ancient Greece and certain Renaissance portraits, oblivious to all forms of extreme emotions.

Paco Ñíguez was born on May 19, 1959 in the city of Cartagena. From an early age he showed interest in drawing and painting. In 1979 he began studying Fine Arts at the San Carlos School of Valencia, graduating in 1984. Since he finished his studies, he combines his artistic activity with teaching. In 1985 he acceded by opposition to the Secondary School Teachers Corps and since 2007 also teaches, as an associate professor, in the Faculty of Fine Arts of Murcia.
