Contemporary Spanish painter Carlos Morago depicts realistic interior scenes that are mostly reduced to the bare minimum: light floors and walls and sporadical furniture. Empty corridors and rooms are framed through opened doors and walls while opening on uneventful exteriors through windows and balconies.
Ordinary, in-between environments are the silent protagonists of the scenes, with variations of light effects intervening to characterise the interiors. Like a modern-day V.Hammershøi, Morago inquires about the suspended moments before entering a space, its progressive discovery and the projection toward the outside.
