Stories of the Travelling Sun
Merinero enjoys the sunset from the vacant lot next to San Francisco el Grande in the centre of Madrid. He gazes through squinted eyes and imagines what he has reflected in a series of 14 collages: Stories of the Travelling Sun.
Leitmotif are the setting sun’s rays and colour range and its promise to return in the morning to witness stories yet unknown.
The earth rotates. The sun bathes her in light and feeds her, yet with these collages Merinero interprets the sun’s omnipresence as a wonderful and enviable capacity of being able to travel the world everyday.
Through stencils, cut out and painted paper from billboards he has united a range of characters, typographies, and backgrounds gathered on numerous travels in Asia and Europe. With these collages he tells us what he would like the sun to have seen: a bright and tender world.
Collages: recycled billboard paper, cardboard, stencils and spray paint
Dimensions: 102 x 72 cm.
