      Abstract: La secuencia de imágenes nace de la conversión en puntos de una fotografía en blanco y negro que me realizó el artista Antón Sobral. Fue muy sugerente profundizar en la concepción de retrato y autorretrato desde un punto de vista psicológico, conceptual y visual, con origen en las variaciones de ordenamiento de los pequeños fragmentos a los que fue reducida la fotografía. Las imágenes se originan con un revelado analógico en blanco y negro sobre papel de sales de plata, y recortada en un número indeterminado de trozos circulares. Las diferentes acumulaciones de los pequeños puntos, al volver a ser fotografiados, refractan la luz, debido al recubrimiento de sales de plata, según sean la iluminación y el ángulo de inclinación de los papeles, lo que produce la descomposición del espectro visible convirtiendo la imagen-origen en blanco y negro en otra donde abundan los matices de color.  Con las imágenes se incluyen una serie de textos, que son recogidos de otros textos y que algunos de ellos remiten, además, a otros textos o autores, aunque no tienen la función, en absoluto, de ser citas o explicaciones. Simplemente son ángulos de interpretación o acotamientos de terrenos o sugerencias de lectura. Poseen entidad de elementos individuales, recogidos de un libro individual y concreto y no referenciados como bibliografía genérica. La función de la serie de imágenes propuesta es abrir y definir el retrato/autorretrato como la imagen mental conformada por la figuración ideal de todas las posibles imágenes producidas o por realizar, según la misma sistemática de acumulación de fracturas. Planteamos si la obra puede considerarse como autorretrato, puesto que tiene autoría personal y está referida a la visión que tiene el autor de sí mismo, o como retrato porque parte de una imagen analógica captada por otro artista, lo que incluye, su propia versión personal. Subyace en el trabajo el sentido de la identidad del sujeto. La identidad personal ya no será física o temporal, real o histórica, ni siquiera biográfica, sino que será mental, figurada o imaginada, concluyendo en una disolución aparente del yo. El esfuerzo de reconstrucción del yo o mejor, de creación consciente del yo, se ve perturbado o completado, según se determine, por la irrupción de otros autores y pensadores, diversos en sus concepciones vitales, a través de sus propios textos desgajados y descontextualizados de la narrativa donde ellos la incluyeron. Son reordenados entre sí por voluntad del autor y serán desnaturalizados como textos al ser tratados como imagen. Los fragmentos fortuitos e inciertos, su final e inconclusa imagen mental y necesariamente disruptiva del yo, se aúnan con las imágenes de los textos inconexos de otros pensadores, conformando la obra final. Es entonces cuando el autor/artista adquiere sentido.Jesús Pastor

  • Heroines in a Misogynistic Society. Teresa of Jesus Barricaded in the
           Mansion. Mysticism in Contemporary Art

    • Authors: Natividad Navalón Blesa, Alejandro Mañas García, Teresa Cháfer Bixquert
      Pages: 17 - 44
      Abstract: This article is the first in a series of reflections in which our main objective is the recovery of space that should never lose women. We review those heroines women in a misogynist society, who have been influential thinkers in the creative work of contemporary art. This text is dedicated to Saint Teresa of Jesus, a heroine, in whom many artists have set their sights as a benchmark for empowerment and they have directed their work toward mysticism, creating a connection between art and spirituality. We collect a selection of artists who have used the mystical, pain, purple, silence, visions, and finally, ecstasy, in their creative process, to give voice to a gender problem in this society and to work in the struggle for the recovery of a space that had always belonged to women. Artists who, through their work, claim a place in a society culturally articulated by man. They are a clear example of what we have called heroines women in a misogynist society.

  • Sensitivity. Focussing on the Visionary State

    • Authors: María Pilar Rivera Guiral
      Pages: 45 - 75
      Abstract: We believe that the visionary experience is the seed of genuine creation. This is the reason why in this article we explore the human ability to perceive reality in an extraordinary way. Through the first-person account of neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor that suffered a stroke, we discovered that the world might be revealed fluid, vibrant and bright. But above all, we rely on the concept of sensitivity, the ability to see beyond the sensible, that the neuropsychiatrist Shafica Karagulla investigated with scientific rigor. Sensitives are people who have natural gifts to see, colors, fields and energy vortexes, they capture greater wave spectrum, they modify as many vibrations, frames, interconnections and interactions and increased quantity and quality of phenomena. We make a special mention in the savants, sensitive people with amazing talents on one hand, which were often accompanied by dysfunction on the other hand.

  • Subjectivities. Performance in Writing about the Production of the
           Hispano-Mexican Artist Remedios Varo

    • Authors: Edilberto de Jesus Hernández González
      Pages: 76 - 91
      Abstract: This reflective work is a scriptural performance around the production of the Hispano-Mexican artist Remedios Varo; approach which is based on a perspective of an aesthetic cognition. Mode relationship with knowledge that favors sensible possibilities of encounter with the world around us and who understands life as a constant movement of energy that is breath of beings and cosmic density. The meeting with Remedios Varo, as an artist who embodies a free spirit, was built in conversation with two experiences, one in Nobsa (Boyaca, Colombia) that has historically had a vocation craft production of textiles; and another made up of a stay in Mexico City. These experiences became key creative perception is subjective universe that Remedios Varo and his art. A work consisting of dynamic networks that interconnect with each other worlds. On the way of contemporary subjectivities, as the artworks of Remedios Varo are configured, spaces and bodies comprise complex, dramatic and emotional universes.

  • Analysis of the Coherence between the Pictorial Process of Yves Klein and
           the Idea of Duplicity in his Monochromes of the Series IKB-International
           Klein Blue

    • Authors: Jaume Fortuny Agramunt
      Pages: 92 - 125
      Abstract: Research aimed to understand how Yves Klein created the new colour International Klein Blue and to collect the data needed to define the object of his specific actions on his canvas and any other surfaces named IKB. Research of this kind sought to improve our understanding of the technological aspects underlying the science of colour and its duplicity. The methodology that was used in the process of analysis was the technology of industrial painting, spectrophotometry and colorimetry, and it was with the aim of confirming the aesthetic experience described in the reviews on the IKB and the idea of duplicity. The intensity, tone, subtone, dominant wavelength, luminosity, brightness, gloss, refractive index and paint viscosity were analysed. The results of the analysis showed that this blue was not a new colour, and that it also did not have an exceptional intensity. Klein failed to duplicate his IKB.
