Ricardo Fumanal's scope of action is located in a non-place where speed and stillness exist side by side, implying that his current work arises from a fragmented, multifaceted and versatile gaze. His images follow a diagrammatic procedure that provides for their reinterpretation as collage and subsequent analogical postproduction. His compositional identity is thus defined by simplicity and a confrontation between figures and background, resorting to a network of references, icons and spontaneously topical items, all tangled with resources, recollections and pre-generational links.
