Rupia

design by
Lluís Lleó

USA, 2016


“Rupia is the village in Spain where I spend my summers, north of Barcelona. From the window in my studio, I see a huge sunflower field and at the end of the sunflower field is the ocean. So when you look at this carpet and you see this image of the yellow and the blue, you think this is an abstract painting. In reality, it’s an abstraction of something I see every day when I’m working in Spain. This is one of a series of paintings, always called Rupia, that I’ve been working on. For me they are a way to remember my summers in Spain when I’m working in New York in the winter; they make me feel warm somehow, as if I’m home.”


Pile composition: 100% wool Technique: hand woven Origin: India Size. 290x198 cm


Lluís Lleó


Lluís Lleó (b. 1961) is a self-taught, fourth generation painter who grew up immersed in the classical history of painting from ancient times through the 20th century. As curator Pilar Parcerisas wrote, Lleó "does not apply painting to architecture, but he transforms painting into architecture". Lleó's masterful, almost playful, manipulation of form, volume and light offers the viewer a sense of discovery and wonder.
