Vision of art
This painting contains all the intentions that I try to capture in my works. That is why, I think this work is directly related to my way of expression: because of the importance I give to the overall relation between colors and shapes and also to the autonomy relation between both, trying to find a place in space for each one. There is no kind of anecdote in this work, non previously sketches, relation to objects or landscapes, not even an intention for this work to look like something similar.
Superimpose in space, an almost primitive symbolism appears, like circles, lines and points planted everywhere, creating various rhythms associated, perhaps, to the music of life. The color notes mingles with situations almost achromatic, but necessarily to infuse power, there, where extern and intern can be confused. My work presents a very intimate aspect, like if I where embroidering on canvas, with the simplicity of days events, like watching through the window in a rainy day where everything loose consistence and the fog starts covering the scene. I investigate color till satiation and the doubt it's always with me.
The abstract representation becomes necessarily into a way of expression, to tell what I feel and not what I can't see. We don't find, in my works, any kind of anecdote, non previously sketches, relation to objects or landscapes, not even an intention for this work to look like something similar. I try not to lie to my work and myself. I analyze insistently the image in order to add up everything. The images are sometimes transformed in networks that does not catch anything, only serves as a union, to communicate, to approach them.
I create paintings like if I where daydreaming, like if I where traveling without the anxiety of arrival.
My painting is full of transparencies and its done by infinite color layers intertwined with lines and others symbolism that overlaps in space and each element placed on the canvas, by chance or in a rational way, it strike up to an permanent dialog between the background and the figure represented or not.
Eduardo Stupía presented in Jorge Mara Gallery an series of drawings which I found like an incredible wealth. All the lines use and stains, took me to discover unthoughtful worlds, suggestive and full of freshness. Another important exhibition realized by Juan Astica, in Wusmann Gallery. Astica is a master in color use, and his images transmits a direct message with private matters. Although his paintings are strong and charged of matters, can not let me stop feeling an almost religious softness.
I have to mention also an excellent exhibition realized by Juan Doffo in Rubbers, in 2007. A exhibition with monumental magnitude, riddled by intense images that where distributed in the space each of them with the same comfort like inside his own studio.
Doffo disturbs from the representation and his intellectuality. The works looks like classical, really good painting, but the interesting thing is that the mere representation is not the only thing left in his work. Something indicates me that inside this images there is intern world living, metaphysical, which dislodges naturally.
