“Paintings have always been considered as motionless objects that
deteriorate with time. Instead, Comin wants to consider paintings as living
objects which appear static, as if only sleeping. That is why he tries to
make them evolve and duplicate like cells. His paintings adapt themselves to
every different environment they deal with. In this way they can conquer
different spaces such as floors, corners, edges or ceilings.” - M. Morales,
art dealer-.
