The book Més enllà dels ulls, a compilation of drawings, paintings and sculptures by Quicu Samsó, has just gone to press. As G. A. Jacovkis says in the book’s prologue: “Quicu Samsó creates with a couple of drumsticks, a paintbrush or a chisel. He is able, with any of these tools, to destroy limits, to go beyond. Thus his pictures and sculptures manage to escape from canvasses and stones, and to become feelings and emotions; then they return to their origin, to the emotions and feelings they were born from. He is wholly contained in each of his creations.”
Quicu Samsó is also an excellent drummer, a reference in Barcelona’s jazz of recent decades. He has formed part of groups such as Koniec, Moisés Moisés, Obmuz and Macromassa. He has also collaborated with musicians such as John Zorn, Agustí Fernández, Hiroshi Kobayashi and Pascal Comelade.
