We present a new collaboration full of color at the hand of Barcelona artist Santi Moix, born by the admiration of Nani Marquina for his work.
For this collaboration, pieces have been chosen where the artist explores the parallelism between life and death through his biomorphic flowers. His use of color goes beyond the merely decorative: it is the resource to enhance and attenuate certain details while paying special attention to in-betweens; those intermediate processes in flowers such as the moments before their birth, their explosion of color or their decay.
Backyard is a literal representation of one of Moix’s works, in which the original piece has been transferred as reliably as possible to a rug. Its name refers to the natural space behind a house, where the flora is wilder. Hence it is a mural with a messier approach where flowers are presented on a spectacular scale. Its lines in low relief reflect the pencil sketches of the painting.
The Promenade model is an exercise in reinterpreting the artist’s floral work transferred to the rug. The nanimarquina team has worked carefully on the selection of each of the flowers, paying special attention to the scale and color in search of the appropriate compositional balance to ensure that Promenade is integrated and coexists in multiple spaces.
It is also worth remarking its wide range composed of 38 different colors, an exhaustive chromatic work.
The smaller models called Bloom are the extraction of Promenade flowers as separate pieces. They represent two moments in the life cycle of a flower: wilting and flowering. They are combinable with each other and also complement the Colors collection.
