David Cata and his hands are the “Horizontes”

Spanish artist David Cata sews landscapes on his hands, into the skin of his palm, creating art that is both intriguing and squeamish in his series, ‘Horizontes’, or horizons.

The series does not deal with themes of self-harm; rather, “with changes, the confrontation with the past and the uncertainty of the future”. Cata’s choice of art is determined by visuals that bear personal significance to him: a lover not yet roused from sleep, a piano, a lighthouse, a snowy mountain, and the ocean. All in his hands.

The unconventional series works as a type of journal for Cata, who explains that the landscapes are a part of him. They will become, he states, “the first pages of many that will be printed on the skin”. Through these works reflecting his own hands, Cata shows a remembrance and the meaning of a place on a person, both metaphorically and physically.
