It is the last major solo exhibition of his career, after those organized in the MultipleSpacings gallery of Bern, Switzerland (2013) and Miami Art River (Miami Art Basel 2013), contains the complete works of the Spanish artists based in Miami, which was awarded with the city of Alcalá painting Award 2012. This exhibition shows, along with the recently opened exhibition Alcalá-Gateway to America, one of the highlights of the official program of the festival PHotoEspaña 2015 and reinforces the important role of culture and the promotion of the arts promoted by the city of Alcala de Henares.

The multidisciplinary artist, Villotaf, has gathered about 60 works for the exhibition, made between 1994 and 2015 with a theme specified by giving a view that, for the most part, are presented to the public for the first time. The artist offers a new sample of his creative ability to dissolve the way through abstraction of an emotional and passionate world.

WERE, from the German, referring to the Werewolf, not mystical or fantastic sense but taking it to a level of transformation of how abstraction and the artist himself to the process, in his "Vollmond" in its full moon, which transcends the creative subconscious.


Direct works created in different aspects, in which the carrier itself holds concepts and tracings of lines and spots of colour. His last proposal in which the normality of being in the transformation of the creator and his world, in his own language, personal introspection in the turning of "kreative Moment" contrasts, in which the artist transcends the plane of its own metamorphosis, transmutation to a different reality, the "WERE" their works.

 In recent years, Villotaf has consolidated the incorporation of alpha numeric license plate "TAGS" or "PLATES" Reflecting the mood of the complex fractal agility and turn in a game of intuition doors vulgar or acquaintance.

 Being and creations do not hesitate to continuous mutation, in space, over time. Continuity / Relativity.

In different creative disciplines, with pieces of classical formats, paintings, photographs and pieces intervened, stained papers, texts, collages, and digital experiences. Pareidolia.

Following these results the true essence of this transformation is. Vitality and experience of the freest emotions that lie at the root of Action Paint and Abstract Expressionism, as continuity of Spanish contemporary avant-garde.

Three rooms with two joined first the concept of mutation and the third, called "Annex X", in which the artist becomes separated from the formalities using a more biased and far more conceptual language for the exhibition.

On the occasion of the exhibition, it has published a catalogue that includes texts cut on metaphysical and poetic exhibition project Villotaf, the artist and architect, professor of projects of higher technical school of architecture and writer José María García del Monte, which will have its presentation, a week after the opening of the exhibition.
