Produced in 1989, the year when he was awarded the National Visual Arts Prize, on this large-format canvas J. M. Sicilia poses two questions which he shares with other artists of his generation over the same years: texture/matter in dialogue with research on light. In his case, Sicilia opts for a more austere but simultaneously complex resolution: he starts out from a white surface on which he experiments with materials such as acrylic paste mixed with wax, resulting in a texture rich in nuances which, in addition to lending depth, at the same time structures the effects produced by the light.
