Iker Lemos, attention by a society draw from the progressive rise of the visual-technological; where the omnipresence of the images has become subject of multiple sociological and aesthetic discourses, has determined that the review of how images are represented became the axis of his artistic discourse.
The confrontation in view of the dematerialization of what is real, which favors the appearance of symbol structures that prevent to presume realities or past events, is solved by simulation: a precise conflict in the narrow approach between the image and the object, this settles an essential resource of his work.
This juxtaposition of concepts leads him to combine pictorial strategies of reproduction with elements and digital duplicates: to fragment appropriate images that relate to a concerning object, or to get ride of their original identity, therefore don’t give them a concrete interpretation. Thus, we are being faced with different conflicts around the suggestive idea of the imagen: how we see, what we want to see or what they make us see, are some of the issues that invites us to think about an image without any images.
” Art is how to simulate a solution for the necessity to complete what is never completed. ”
