Our relationship with H2O and life is a mystery we are constantly unravelling. So far, we know humans and water have a lot in common: we are both a combination of molecules, constantly flowing, forever changing one way or another. Water is a provider of indispensable energy, the source of initiation, purification, cleansing, vital, spiritual, thirst quenching, solid, liquid and lighter than a feather; so water, like life, is a treasure.
For the past 12 years, photographic artist Ricardo B. Sanchez has developed a passion for creating abstract imagery of water. By focusing on the amazing variety with which water reveals it’s form, the artist wants to explore the depth by which these images of water become metaphors of our experience. The images are a visual reminder of how different the apparent form of the same thing can be. We are all equal, yet each one of us is different. Art in Aqua is born from the desire Ricardo B. Sanchez has to expand the horizons of his creative vision.
Contemporary technological advances in photographic printing, allow for high quality image reproduction in large sizes and materials not available until very recently. We can print on tempered glass, aluminum, and other materials in sizes undreamed of 15 years ago, and we have a way of protecting the printed image, so over time, weather and water will not affect the quality of the printed image.
ART IN AQUA is joining forces with two highly experienced corporate entities to create and construct PHOTOGRAPHIC FOUNTAINS. LUMIARTECNIA INTERNATIONAL is a leader in the development of technology for decorative water fountains. For 3 generations they have developed a magnificent variety of decorative fountains, and ART IN AQUA will rely on them exclusively to develop PHOTOGRAPHIC FOUNTAINS. FRANJAMELERO is also a leader in creating, producing and installing monumental PHOTOGRAPHIC MURALS. Their multiple installations in the MADRID METRO, as well as in other public spaces, show us just how extraordinary monumental photographic or simply graphic installations can be.
We look forward to creating your PHOTOGRAPHIC FOUNTAIN or other monumental graphic installation.
