Time Out says

Lídia Masllorens (Caldes de Malavella, 1967), who won the 2013 prize for painting from the Vila-Casas Foundation, presents this exhibition conceived and directed by Glòria Bosch that brings together some 20 large-format pieces made between 2014 and 2019. The exhibition includes some of the artist's best-known works, her singular “portraits” and “non portraits”, where male and female characters are represented using the monotype technique. Masllorens depicts faces that show joy, pain, suffering, disappointment and effort. All these faces have been extracted from photographic montages produced by great contemporary stylists: magazine photographers who portray ideal male and female faces.

Complementing this family of faces, the “Zoom” series, which consists of details that normally go unnoticed by the naked eye: technical effects and defects, splashes and tiny bubbles. Here, the microscopic details that Masllorens focuses on and magnifies take the leading role in order to demonstrate that it's the tiny details, where wrinkles, expressions and nuances hide, that bring her characters to life.
