Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
The work that Tomàs Morell presents at Art on a Postcard is a collection of four miniature paintings made in the summer of 2022. He is interested in exploring ideas related to the identity of women and femininity, using contemporary stereotypical imagery, interwoven with memories and personal experiences. The invented scenes are humorous as they allude to the debate surrounding gender identity, and while emphasizing irony in order to approach the human condition, the paintings are testimonies of a deep admiration and love for the feminine.
