Galindo gave the director the strength to dare paint for the first time at age 69

Almería, June 30, 2019

 

The spanish newspaper El País discusses Jorge Galindo's and Pedro Almodóvar's collaboration:

 

"Both have known each other for many years. Almodóvar also has works by Galindo in his Madrid home. "He is to blame for all this," explains the filmmaker in Almería. "He called me because he had seen my still-life photographs in [the Madrid gallery] Marlborough and said he wanted to enlarge them so that we could transform them into paintings. I have a rudimentary knowledge of photography, but I didn't know that from a small format image you could achieve that quality in enlargement. That part interested me. I went to see him to basically say no to the proposal to paint. When I got to the studio and saw all those canvases spread out on the floor ready to be painted, Galindo infected me with his enthusiasm."
