«I like paintings with light and sun; I don’t like to highlight the shadows. I look for light, remoteness, the profundity, the air. If it is raining, or if it is Autumn, then I let my imagination fly». This is Josep Mª MEJAN, who on the occasion of this exhibition has returned from Llanars to Sant Cugat del Vallès, where he lived some years ago.
Josep Mª Cadena, as an art critic, discovers the intricacies of the “Mejan’s mystery”: «Mr. Josep Mª Mejan, through colors and few lines, outlines the perimeter in which we move physically and mentally». In fact, the landscape in itself does not exist: there are things —fields, mountains, horizons— and, according to all this, we define the landscapes»..
Mr. Cadena continues with his words: «Human beings need to live with concepts. Mejan defines the concept of “landscape”. In fact, we see what we have in front of us, what is nearest to us. Later, we look at the distance: the horizon, the terrain. The combination of these elements leads us to the definition of the landscape, not as something we can touch, but makes us think, reflecting on our inner self».
