"Primary Storm" is an original, one of a kind artwork featuring acrylic, liquid pigments and glue on canvas by Spanish artist Saul Gil Corona one of three early works from a small private collection owned originally by a British businessman that has never been to market.
In the words of the artist describing this work.
Storm. Primary colors blend in the fight. The emotions found. The sea, the fire and the light.
At this time, impulsivity was an important engine in my creativity. I created, created and created. My captain was the heart, and there was no other captain on deck. We sailed together and wrecked together. It really wasn't a time when I reflected a lot: I was a person who moved by feelings rather than thoughts.
And this I wanted to capture in works as it is: the impulses of the heart, the noise in a battle with myself in which the feelings meet and really everything is dark and confusing. But you know that in the background there is a light and your duty is to go towards it.
This is what Saul says about himself.
Hi. My name is Saúl Gil Corona and I can't live without painting. Since birds can't fly without wings, like dolphins can't swim without fins, I can't live without painting.
For me, painting is not something I do to find an inner peace or to relax. To paint is war with myself. Painting turns me on and gives me headaches when I can't find that work I'm looking for. I think about art constantly, many times I can't sleep. Although I find myself exhausted my head does not stop spinning.
For better or worse, I am chaining this dream. I have had times when I combined art with hard work in factories. I slept little. The money I earned was spent on buying material to paint. I bet on this when I had almost nothing to bet. I have even thought about abandoning ... but I have never been able to, because when I spend a short time without painting I feel drowned and died in life.
I'm autodidactic. With my painting I try to explain what happens to me inside. I really think I explain myself better by painting than by speaking. I like works that remind me that we are human, that we have feelings and that we still differ from robots (I say even because I see that in the not too distant future we will become machines, if we are not). I love imperfections, things that excite, I love what emanates from the heart. This is my goal when I paint.
Although lately I also try other forms of creativity more philosophical and intellectual. This coming and going from one place to another, in the world of the creative.
I like works with meaning, those that want to change something in some sense, even if it is something small and something of little scope.
As a last thing to say that I admire the classics, both the classic painters and the poets, as all the people who, in one sense or another made the world a little better. I believe that to all who lived before us we owe everything we know and everything we can do. They made us start from a more advanced point where they started. They built things for us and we must respect that. But we also have the obligation to take this cultural heritage beyond for subsequent generations and of course always taking care of this place called land that we must love and make it last millions of years.
