A SLOW ARTIST?: THE QUINCE TREE SUN BY VICTOR ERICE AND ANTONIO LOPEZ GARCIA
By Vica Smirnova
As with Antonio López Garcia, who follows nature, Victor Erice creates a palimpsest of times, or, rather, of traces of their presence, insisting on conventionality of end and beginning. In the end the camera, which for a long time shared a place with the artist, is left in solitude. Different mediums will create a semblance of finality; of something that doesn’t finish or, on the contrary, finishes in every moment of painting and filming.
