1. How are you doing, Saรบl? Howโ€™s everything in Barcelona, Spain?

All right. We have had very difficult times for the covid. Now it seems that everything is better, but it is even dangerous because a relaxation of the attention can bring a new outbreak. Spaniards are hot people and it is difficult for us to keep our distance; we love contact from person to person and we love social life.

On the other hand, maintaining a stopped country is financially complicated, so there is the eternal dilemma: whether to give preference to the health of the people or to the economy of a country. In my head I prefer health, but governments really cannot let a country come to a complete stop.

But well โ€ฆ letโ€™s trust that everything will be fine.

2. Would you mind telling us some of the special moments on your creative journey?

Well I donโ€™t really have unforgettable moments at the moment โ€ฆ maybe itโ€™s sad. I usually create from pain, so I guess my creative trips are not very festive.

3. What are your 3 favourite paintings from the exhibition?

Punitive progress, 2020; oil on canvas; 12 3/16 x 10 7/16 in.; (31 x 26.5 cm.)

C-19, 2020, oil on canvas; 14 3/16 x 11 13/16 in.; (36 x 30 cm.)

My favourites are: Punitive Progress, c19 andโ€ฆโ€ฆโ€ฆ

The first two I like because I see something dramatic, and it is this type of thing that usually attracts my attention. For me, art usually comes from pain, and in these works by Troilo, I think this feeling is most evident.

4. If you could share your works with Angelo Troilo, which one would it be?

Blood and Roses; oil on canvas; 51 3/16 x 38 3/16 in. (130 ร— 97 cm.)

Como el puente de Avignon (Like the Bridge of Avinyo); oil on canvas; 66 15/16 x 47 ยผ in. (170 x 120 cm.)

My works done in confinement are essentially sexual. They really donโ€™t go much beyond what you can see with the naked eye. I built a mental window through which to escape from that overwhelming confinement and the result was that.

But I would choose โ€œBlood and Rosesโ€ and โ€œComo el puente de Avignon (Like the Bridge of Avinyoโ€, which are two dramatic works that I made before confinement. These were a great catharsis at a time that was not good for me. If I have to talk about myself, I think that these works are very honest with me. (to be continued)
