Pablo Lecroisey, the recreation of the spirit. Anyone on the paper will not be me but my pretense and your version of the facts Photography, José Luis Piquero. The photographic work of Pablo Lecroisey is the result of the inquiry into the feelings and obsessions that throughout his career have shaped a unique personal linguistic world inside the photographer. His work is translated into a set of compositions with a strong fantastic and surreal sense that we could classify as Ars Combinatoria, a way of representing reality as a complex and plural osmosis of characters and a wondrous scenery in their body and their argument. Thus, it presents a catalog of unlikely convergence, understanding this description as amazing, but with sufficient information to be able to deduct interpreting and thus his initial intention. Lecroisey is a photographer whose multiple narrative and aesthetic devices contains constant references to the Baroque masters and the Raphaelites. It´s notable for his use of the light and the knowledge of the color values of the clothes and scenarios, the understanding of space and the changing light values - especially in times of high light, especially in the appearance of the shadows and performance capture by the sight of all the scenes and figures. So Lecrosey carries to the light and leads the viewer's eye through the skillful use of the objetive through the power of the compositions applied safely and enlivened each other, figures act as a unifying element in a clever management of styles, methods and means. His photographs include portraits of characters that interact either with each other or with their environment, in a theater full of excessive energy. Paul Lecroisey approaches short stories, contemporary tales, fables with a moral in each of his compositions; The Day of tomorrow invites us to explore the beauty of the unexpected through dance, the series The Big House of Fuencarral, recounts through a ghostly presence the charm of the ruin, in the heartbreaking The Prado Shouts transmitted anguish redeemed by action, in Nacho is dead talks about the loneliness and chaos of the artist, Is never too late reflects on the ages of man and eternity etc… In all his works resemble photograms in a multi story unfolding without a linear structure. These photographic sequences, simulating a storyline, a story or a kind of tale, although they may trigger a series of actions in the viewer's mind the narrative is too fragmentary to approach the overall picture. His commitment to the sets in unexpected places (like the Centro Cultural La Tabacalera, the Thyssen Museum and the historic restaurant Lhardy in Madrid) contribute to give a new meaning for these space while gaining a new narrative imagery that meets the collective desire to create stories. The artist oscillates between past, present and future, dream and reality, tradition and modernity, fiction and truth, addressing the deepest feelings of the human soul. The specific becomes the interiority of the photographer, the narrative desire and the fables plays with the transcendental self to unite the concepts that Lecroisey generates in his struggle forward.
