Óscar Parasiego

Cangas del Narcea, 1981. Reside en Madrid. Posee un Master de fotografia de Autor en la Efti.(Madrid, 2008).

Su práctica artística explora la incapacidad de la fotografía para retratar la complejidad del mundo sensible. Formalmente, su investigación se centra en el uso de herramientas digitales para rompen la bidimensionalidad de la fotografía introduciendo un tercer elemento perturbador que interpela al espectador. Genera así un lenguaje propio que se articula a través de distintas capas de realidad. Un código que invita a descifrar las estrategias de reconstrucción de las imágenes a través de nuestra memoria.

Su trabajo evoca una estética surrealista creando potentes imágenes con múltiples lecturas que siempre necesitan del observador para completar la experiencia artística. Algunos de los temas que toca son la identidad, espacio-tiempo, interior-exterior, forma-función y representación-realidad.

Durantelos últimos años Óscar ha estado involucrado en multiples proyectos artísticos en diferentes paises colaborando con comunidades multiculturales.

Oscar Parasiego is a Spanish multi-disciplinary visual artist currently based in Madrid. He graduated with an Honours Degree from the MA Fine Art Photography at the School of Photography EFTI in Madrid (2008)

His practice explores the untruthfulness of photography and the inability of photography to capture the complexity of human self-reflection. Some of the themes explore identity, communication, emigration, death and relationships.

His artworks evoke surrealist aesthetics creating powerful and playful images, always in need of the observer to complete the journey.

He is currently interested in pushing photography’s boundaries and exploring the untruthfulness of photography with virtual and invisible technologies. His aim is to re-think photography in an innovative way, no longer as a 2D or frozen time instant but something else.

He has delivered several art projects over the last 10 years working in different countries and collaborating with very diverse communities.
