Fifteen holes is the title of a large-format pictorial piece produced in the late ‘eighties belonging to the well-known “Holes” series. The canvas depicts a “swooping” close-up of a piece of ground the only objectual presence of which is found in the form of the perforations made all over the surface. Barceló continues his interest in the landscape genre and experiments using the non-presence, the void, strengthening three-dimensionality using a figurative language of his own based on texture and matter, to give shape to this emphatic piece which maintains a similar composition to other paintings made in the same year in New York.
