Press release:
Thus the colour becomes the pure motif in Yago Hortal’s work, adopting all forms imaginable in conceiving a long awaited psychological portrait of itself. This prominence carries the artist’s work far beyond the brushs- troke, also bringing into play other resources such as the outrageous style of dripping, the judicious spattering of bold strokes, the level of intensity pushed to the limit, the harmonious canalization within a certain random- ness presented in the accidental paint on the canvas or working with experimental dialogue on backgrounds previously primed with colour. Yet the most important of all is what governs the use of all these resources, that natural disposition towards the composition of the work, that singular mastery in bringing all the extreme elements to the final equilibrium that makes Yago Hortal an extraordinary artist.
Part of the text from Carlos Jover
