Pedro Campos Description
Campos did not have his first solo exhibition until 1998, when he had a showing in Salamanca and A Coruña. The results of this were so encouraging that the following year he determined to give up all other activities and become a full-time painter- and with considerable success. His meticulously executed snatches of the real world are executed with the minute precision of higher mathematics; and yet what seem to be very cool, unemotional artworks, embracing a quietist aesthetic, turn out to set off an intensely emotional experience.
What begins in mathematics, ends in a subtle and a virtually indefinable magic.
From “Exactitude: Hyperrealist Art Today” By John Russell Taylor
Pedro Campos Statement
Campos has attributed his work in restoration to honing his craft in precision, stating: “I think the influence of restoration in developing my own way of painting has been important. The restoration of lost areas in antique paintings forces you to seek excatitude in color: any personal intervention should go unnoticed.”
