In Oliver Roura's painting the events do not take place on the surface of the canvas as has been happening in the western pictorial tradition. The traditional fabric and frame act here only as the display where the painting will be "installed" once the painting process itself has been completed.

In Roura's work, painting develops within itself. It is inside where actions, gestures, and different pictorial moments take action. Possibly it is not a coincidence that the work of painting "from within" the resulting forms refer us to microscopic views that at molecular level also show us the respective internal structures of the elements in question. Thus, Roura's work reflects in a certain way on the composition and structure of the painting itself.

It is through transparency that we will appreciate what the paint contains inside. This transparency, together with the smooth and glazed surface we see at first, also reminds us of the classic idea of a window. The idea of painting as a window to a landscape or an external reality takes on new dimensions here. Roura does not propose us to look through a window as in Renaissance painting, Roura proposes us to enter into this glass that acts as a border between what we perceive and what we are, to reflect ultimately on matter and the closest reality.
