Tapiès does not seek to represent reality through everyday materials rather he seeks to invent a new reality, highlighting even the slightest value of the smallest objects. Fons Roig, made in 1988, is a perfect example of this exploration and research on materials. The work masterfully shows the artist’s incredible capacity to work materials in monumental formats. There is something remarkable and enigmatic in this canvas, an almost spiritual dimension accentuated by a recurring motif in the Catalan painters’ work: the cross as a primitive or catholic symbol. A luminous aura emanates from Fons Roig, rearing up in front of the spectator like a wall, an archaeological canvas from which traces of the artist’s hand have disappeared leaving way for the mystical power of the material.
