Born in 1954 in Madrid, Spain.
Lives and works in Majorca and Paris.
José Maria Sicilia has always been deeply sensitive to nature, and has devoted much of his career to question immaterial space between art and life, between Eros and Thanatos. Beyond their immediate and disturbing beauty, the works of José Maria Sicilia transpose us in frontier territories, where the familiar becomes strange and where memory is “mise en abîme”.
His work has been shown internationally in many collective exhibitions including in the Kranenburgh Museum, Bergen (2018); Museo Casa de la Moneda, Madrid (2017); Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando, Madrid (2016); Musée Delacroix, Paris (2015); Centre Pompidou Metz (2014); Matadero Madrid (2013); Fukushima Prefectural Museum of Art (2013); Santa Caridad, Sevilla (2012); Amos Anderson Art Museum, Helsinki (2010).
José María Sicilia's works are featured in important public and private collections across Europe, the U.S.A. and Asia, including: CAPC, Musée d’Art Contemporain de Bordeaux, France; Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid, Spain; Banco de España collection, Madrid, Spain; Caixa Collection, Barcelona, Spain; Institute Valencià d’Art Modern, Spain; The Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY, U.S.A.; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, NY, U.S.A. and the Cincinnati Art Museum, OH, U.S.A. among others.
