“Throughout the history of art, painters saw what lay in front of them. However, as everyone knows, a single finger can block out the sun. What is right in front of you can obscure so many things, so I thought it better to look from above, in order to find clarity” (Juan Genovés cited in: Armando Montesinos and Mariano Navarro, ‘Juan Genovés: An Artist’s Life’, Exh. Cat., New York, Marlborough Gallery, Juan Genovés, 2018, p. 4).
