At the heart of the captivating work of Juan Ramón Fernández Molina, the “Mirage” exhibition (in Spanish, "espejismo) reveals itself as a visual journey through the mazes of perception. With exceptional artistic mastery, the artist invites us to explore the delicate border between tangible reality and fleeting illusions.

Through his vibrant canvases, Juan Ramón leads us to see beyond the surface, through artistic prisms that distort and transform reality. Each brushstroke seems to be an invitation to question our own vision of the world, to question our visual certainties.

In this universe of mirages, Juan Ramón offers us a visual meditation on the transience of reality. Shapes bend, twist and morph, challenging the limits of our visual understanding. His creations become windows open to unsuspected worlds, inviting the viewer to question their own interpretation of reality.


Juan Ramón Fernández Molina skillfully guides us through these artistic mirages, inspiring us to perceive reality from a new perspective, to appreciate the beauty in the ephemeral, and to embrace the poetry of illusion. VSis an invitation to question our vision of the world and to discover the unsuspected beauty that resides in the changing reflections of our perception.
