The images and ideas for my paintings come to me from my imagination. As they surface in my mind, I sketch them out and later transpose them onto the canvas. I have made thousands of sketches. I work with oil, preferably wet-on-wet, trying to complete the piece in only a few sittings. I favor oil paint, as it allows me to bring out the most luminosity in my pieces through careful color mixing. My work narrates my daily encounters with a violent and corrupt reality; my distrust in the institutions and the fragility of life.

ag_artist_statement : I do oil / canvas, I do not hope to achieve anything, it is a game, Ideas come to mind, from a corner of Nowhere, and are shaped. If we had to look for sources of inspiration or background, we would have problems, it seems that my ideas come from absolute emptiness. Hago óleo/lienzo, no espero lograr nada, es un juego, Las ideas vienen a la mente, desde un rincón de la Nada, y se les da forma. Si hubiera que buscar fuentes de inspiración o antecedentes, tendríamos problemas, parece que mis ideas proceden del vacío absoluto.
ag_biography : I did BBAA, minus 3 subjects. Several countries invite me to participate in exhibitions every year (France, Germany, etc.,), but I don't do anything, it's cheaper and more comfortable. Hice BBAA, menos 3 asignaturas. Varios países me invitan a participar en exposiciones cada año ( Francia, Alemania, etc.,), pero yo no hago nada, es más barato y más cómodo.

ag_press_release :

Spanish artist José Pedro Alonso Miralles offers poignant commentaries on today’s society. His work narrates his daily encounters with a violent and corrupt reality; his distrust in the institutions and the fragility of life. Grotesque Kafkaesque creatures with elongated limbs and clawed feet inhabit his world: anthropomorphized insects, weird mechanized beings, phallic symbols. They are our worst nightmares come true and as we look at them, we cannot but stare in horror. Alonso Miralles lifts the veils of illusion that cover reality, exposing it like pulsating raw flesh. There are no more lies and there is no way out. We are trapped, like the three football players in “Campeones,” whose arms are missing; and we are alone and destitute, like the man in “Autorretrato,” begging in the street. Alonso Miralles’ surrealist paintings are like Cassandra’s premonitions: truths we prefer to ignore, because they are too scary to be contemplated.
