Revaluing the Impulse Tàpies. A Contemplative Interaction in the Reflection Room

Mónica Álvarez


In the aftermath of the death of the Catalan artist Antoni Tàpies (06/02/2012)
I followed a trail of movements in an intuitive way activated by the
impression that caused in me and in my environment this death. As a creative,
cognitive and committed person to my interiority I followed this set of
movements from a holistic approach and termed it as impulse Tàpies as it was
somewhat inspired by his life, work and message. This impulse led me to
explore the Reflection Room, a work of integral character made when Tàpies
reached his maturity and connecting through a contemplative interaction
carried out in this room with part of the transcendental message this creator
left us. In the last stage of his life he emphasized between the nexus of art and
spirituality, as well as the urgency of finding equivalents of traditional
contemplative spiritual experiences, adapted to the modern mind.
