EXIT #61 - Photographer Painters

The Invention of Painting

Things are not invented in a magical instant. Things-like the creation of life itself-have been in continuous creation since the beginning of time. Everything is constantly being invented and reinvented. We create each gesture, each sensation, every time that we feel or make it. That is why painting remains alive. For that and because painting, as we understand it today, is not the same as 18th Century paintings or cave paintings, which were invented in a specific moment in history when painting-although maybe not art-demanded reinvention. Art is such an abstract concept that it is subject to the volatile caprices of the market, institutions and intellectuals with goals limited to the horizons of the cities where they temporarily reside. Painting is something else, painting has always been necessary and that is why it doesn't die, it transforms and reinvents itself. It is constantly beginning.

EXIT is a photography magazine and in that framework, this statement of admiration may seem irrelevant. However, it is quite the contrary. This issue continues to focus on the photographic image even though the perspective is guided by the painters' eye. These painters have and continue to invent painting from a unique viewpoint. They have been able to regenerate new ways of doing, looking and being.

Historically, painting has been a practice propelled by the hand, which produced the action and the reality of this action. The body, gesture and strength of the painter have all been discussed. But one day, the hand passed the baton to the eye, to the gaze. When we talk about the beginning of photography and the reasons that led to its invention, its role as an essential collaborative tool is undeniable. Photography is an important tool in science, in research, and in the documentation of everyday life and social changes. It also aids in the understanding of plants, nature and the reality of an inapprehensible world.
