Pablo Sainz’s work is an exploration of movement, merging disparate elements into cohesive yet fragmented narratives. His collages, featuring split images of athletes in action, blur the lines between different moments and realities. By intertwining sports, spirituality, and politics, Sainz’s work dives into the complexities of contemporary life.

My work is nourished by long periods of research, analysis and meditation, a process that allows to change perspectives and where the position of the object of study is affected with new readings: dialogues between time and memory, oblivion and reality, to create one or several divergent landscapes.

I use collage as a kind of diary or notebook where I capture my ideas and concerns almost immediately. It is a technique that allows me to assemble and disassemble, create links and connections. These types of pieces allow me to see how my research works, which convey what they are, what they sound like.

By juxtaposing my thoughts and meditations on paper, the core of what I am working on or researching always comes out. I would tell you that what I always try to communicate is the possibility of dialogue and dissent, the ambivalence of things, the possibility of having perspective in life, of obtaining new readings in any situation.

Collage always adapts to new technologies, but there is nothing better than cutting and pasting with your hands. The question that arises is: Do images still have the same force in our societies? For me the image is an infinite compendium of ideas and possibilities, it is a catalyst, by deconstructing and fragmenting it is renewed, time, context and origin add layers of information. I think that collage allows us other ways of seeing and understanding images, in the end it is that, perspective.
