Santiago Rodríguez del Hoyo(Madrid, 1960), has a four decades long trajectory of creative evolution.Making no concessions to the market,he reclaims the pictorial as the fundamental vehicle of expression.Santiago effectively connects plastic art with an interiority that stands out with absolute sincerity in a dehumanized world, unhinged and incomprehensible.He looksback with fascination to art history and feels intimately related with the thread that stimulates his painting towards a remarkable authenticity. The contemplation of the paintings ofGoya, El Greco, Zurbarán or Velázquez,becomes are search and pictorial experimentation,his artworks remain at all times faithful to daily contact, intense and prosperous with some genuine traditions of the pictorial craft and the secrets of the atelier, without discarding unorthodox and unexpected solutions.The tension between light and shadow (acentral topic of the Baroque tradition) plays an appreciable role in these works.In his spaces based oninformalist resolutions, lineand stain create a strange mixture between figurative and abstract, capable of enhancing the whole mystery of the pictorial in its noblest sense.Santiago proposes hybrid realities: halfway between the biological and the mechanical,the concrete and the dreamed,they tell us stories which fluctuate without apparent logic or are driven by the enigmatic breath of their own logic. They are works wrapped in a very essential drama, not devoid of caustic humour and merciless sarcasm.His painting expresses an emotion that struggles to survive in an inhospitable world, hostile to the human, radically unfathomable and dark, wild and irreductible by nature
