| Next Thursday, July 2, the book Still Life, a poetic work written by Jesús Martínez and illustrated by Pascual Adolfo López | It is a singular work, which opens the litterART collection by Ediciones Gollarín, with which it is intended to combine art and literature. Still Life is a book where Jesus and Pascual Adolfo are discovered as poets of the word and the image.
While Jesús Martínez speaks to nature, Pascual Adolfo presents it to us as a succession of beautiful images, sometimes dreamlike, always visual.
Death, decay, sunset are present throughout the work.
But also the beauty that survives despite death. Heirs to a strong artistic and family baggage, Jesús Martínez y Martínez and Pascual Adolfo López combine poetry and drawing with a result that surprises because of the perfect symbiosis they achieve.
Each one with his own voice, with his own personality, manages to offer us still lifes that transcend the ephemeral to take over the poetic universe and remain in it.
Beauty in language, beauty in images.
