A FLEETING ENCOUNTER

VISIT-WORKSHOP FOR SECONDARY STUDENTS TO THE MITSUO MIURA EXHIBITION
Un encuentro fugaz

Aimed at secondary school students, this visit-workshop focuses on the act of painting, and more specifically on thinking about colours. If you give them time, colours become mysterious. Many of them came about initially as pigments for artistic painting; sometimes their names refer to the geographical regions where they were first used or found, or to the minerals and chemical substances used in their composition.

The names for colours vary depending on cultures and people: it could be the case that the same name for a colour might suggest a different shade to people from different countries. In addition, some have a very precise and unambiguous definition, while others only give vague hints. We can see, for instance, that the sky above Móstoles at 2:26 pm today is Móstoles blue, Thursday blue or sky grey. But that is not exactly it either.

One thing that strikes us as fundamental in Mitsuo Miura’s work is his way of looking at his surroundings, of noticing all the minute changes. Colours, but also humidity, shadows and the weather are all raw material to construct by using what is available to us and to expand the world we think we see.
