José María Sicilia

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 for many exhibitions including the Kranenburgh Museum, Bergen, The Netherlands (2018); Museo Casa de la Moneda, Madrid, Spain (2017) ; Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando, Madrid, Spain (2016); Musée Delacroix, Paris, France (2015); Centre Pompidou Metz, France (2014); Matadero Madrid, Spain (2013); Fukushima Prefectural Museum of Art, Fukushima, Japan (2013); Santa Caridad of Seville, Sevilla, Spain (2012); Amos Anderson Art Museum, Helsinki, Finland (2010); Edward Tyler Nahem Fine Arts, New York, USA (2008).
The works of José María Sicilia are presented in important public and private collections across Europe, the USA and Asia, including: CAPC Musée d’Art Contemporain, Bordeaux; Reina Sofia Museum, Madrid; the Banco de España collection, Madrid; Caixa Collection, Barcelona; Institute Valencià d’Art Modern, Valencia (IVAM); The Museum of Modern Art, New York; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York and the Cincinnati Art Museum, Ohio, among others.
