Samsó (starts working with oil, then presents himself in acrylic and latex, his painting moves from an academic and figurative stage to a geometric approach with little material.) Later, in the 70s, the gesture and dynamism make their appearance. In the 80s, the line becomes more direct and the detail almost disappears in favor of painting. During the 90s, his work is developed and, above all, fresh. The Catalan artist expresses his surrealist, symbolist, magical, expressionist, ironic and dialectical world. "J. Samsó's fabrics provide an appropriate framework for the painter's dynamic performance, where he captures his conscious and subconscious. That is, he works directly with his sensations and thoughts, without representing them allegorically. . But he does not describe them, because his work only alludes to reality, in the manner of an anecdotal note. His real discourse lies in the way he combines the experimentation of color with the universe of concepts that literally empties into the canvas. The brushstrokes are dynamic, very fast, plunged into a state of catharsis. The colors are austere but impressive. The range of blues, reds, blacks and whites predominates. and the gradients give the work a certain spatialist component, as a scene in which each of his characters begins and ends on a daily basis. He combines abstract spatialism with the dynamics of gestures. preferably, a mixed technique, oil and acrylic. ''
