In GENESIS / TECHNO, the abstract geometries that characterize the work of Catalan artist Kenor are always the result of the visual interpretation of the music that motivates his creative action: techno, and more specifically Detroit techno. “An abstract, fascinating techno which originates and evolves … Detroit”. This musical style, made from textures, makes Kenor’s interpretations compose music through gesture, the very act of painting. Each of them is the launching of an accurate, final line which arises in a visceral way. Composing a piece of work in which no line has privilege over the others, any colour prevails over others. His achievement is thereby to generate harmonic and coherent work from the purely expressive. The surface isn’t divided into coordinates, there isn’t a forseen composition. It is the piece of work itself that takes its own rhythm, its own voice. Every gesture builds a line, each set of lines forms a sound, a rhythm. And it is the rhythm of each work what Kenor listens to and paints. It tells him what line follows, what colour is needed.
