Javier Erre (born in Spain, 1981) is a visual artist and painter who explores a narrative and figurative language strongly influenced by photography and digital media. He relates memory and personal recollections to the present through the use of distortion, as a kind of trope that resignifies the images he works with, mostly from family albums.

His current project around the concept of family, recollections and the construction of memory attempts to give a visual appearance to the creative and destructive behaviour of memory, sometimes delicate or fun, sometimes harsh and painful. In the same way as memory does, the image is erased, isolated, doubled, interpreted, distorted… He tries to make present the fact that the past constitutes us in the present, even (or even more) if we are nor aware of it. And make it present allows us to enjoy it or heal if necessary.
