Thoughts: Pensamientos

Jasser Membreno
Free sample

 We are surrounded by images in our daily life as never before.  In Jasser Membreno's beautiful book,Pensamientos, he relieves our saturation from the dense mundane and lifts us into the heights of human imagination, on a masterful flight to the world of his unique imagery and abstract poetry.  It is a journey through his surrealistic narrative without a narrative, with fantastical creatures--reawakening our imagination from the overexposed visual landscape of our bit-filled times to the thrilling recollection of the reality and absurdity of our dream worlds.  He reminds us of the vastness of the human mind.On entering this universe you will often find yourself in two places at once, and equally as often in two languages at once. Translated from English into Spanish, laid side by side, Gloria Alvarez has kept the keen sonic sensibility present in Membreno's pointed poetry, at times coy, at times absurd.

About the author

With so many digital tools available now, there are alot of people who call themselves artists. But the simple reality is: true artistic skill has only ever been given to a select few;

Jasser Membreno is one of them. With an incredible facility for drawing and painting; he creates a moment; in world of his own devising. His work is figurative and fantastically; the landscapes, buildings and objects live simultaneously in the past present and future, of a world full of decay, mystery and invention.

Within that scene, you will often find a figure; vaguely human, certainly emotional. His boundless imagination makes it inevitable that one medium can’t contain his prolific output, and takes him across many borders: his drawing and paintings extend their narrative qualities into actual prose andpoems he writes, into writing and animating his own films and his sculpture works extend his vocabulary into the real world. The one-man and group shows of his work have made him a sought-out talent for commissions and cross-overs into the entertainment industry. 


Estamos rodeados de imágenes como nunca antes en nuestra vida diaria. El libro hermoso de Jasser Membreño, "Pensamientos", alivia nuestra saturación de lo mundano y nos eleva a las alturas de la imaginación humana; un vuelo magistral al mundo de sus imágenes inigualable y poesía abstracta. Es un viaje a través de su narrativa surrealista de criaturas fantásticas--despertando nuestra imaginación superando el paisaje visual sobreexpuesto hacia el recuerdo emocionante de la realidad y lo absurdo de nuestro mundo de suenos.  Nos recuerda a la inmensidad de la mente humana.

Al igual que el caminante encantador del cuento, al entrar este universo a menudo se encontrará en dos lugares a la vez e, igualmente tan a menudo, en dos idiomas a la vez. Traducido de Inglés a Español, ambos puesto lado a lado, Gloria Alvarez ha mantenido la sensibilidad sonica presente en la poesía de Jasser Membreño; a veces tímida, a veces absurdo. Lo ingenio en texto, así como las imágenes, demuestran lo habil de su mano poética.

Sin embargo a lo largo de todo el placer sensual de sus extrañas imágenes y textos discordantes y misteriosos, busca contestar eso que siempre hemos preguntado… la exploración; la mayoria de edad, existencial, caprichosa, alterado...lo necesitamos.
