Vision of art
1. Choose a work that represents you, describe it in relation to its format and materiality, its relation with time and space, its style and theme; detail its production process.
No title. 2006 (first image) 150x150cm. Acrylics on canvass.
Characteristically an out of time work.
Colored shapes, reminding of never-ending space achieved trough contained blues.
The starting excuse is the fragmentation of a body, by repetition and scratching (once and again) it concretes in the abstract image of the same excuse. In a final stage, part of the work is covered with color black.
2. In general terms, how would you suggest to approach your work?
Free to the spectator’s imagination in any type of analysis and value critic of the pieces.
3. In reference to your work and your position in the national and international art fields, what tradition do you recognize yourself in? Who are your contemporary referents? What artists of previous generations are of interest to you?
I find myself in the abstract tradition; I feel great admiration for the artists who called themselves abstract expressionists such as Rothko, De Kooning, Klein, Pollock. In the national field, I’m interested in the artists who were part of the New Figuration flow, and of course, Berni’s work.
4. Choose works or exhibitions from the last ten or fifteen years which in your opinion were very significant and explain why
Every Carlos Alonso’s exhibition, specially Carlos Alonso Illustrator [Carlos Allonso Ilustrador] at the Recoleta Cultural Center (Buenos Aires, Argentina); Ernesto Deira’s retrospective at the National Museum of Fine Arts (Buenos Aires, Argentina); I couldn’t forget Juan Pablo Renzi’s strong conceptual and pictorial work in its different stages shown in his retrospective at Rosario’s Spanish Park; Cesar Baracca’s “mosaics” exposed at the Museum of contemporary art in Rosario in 2008; among others.
5. What tendencies or groupings from common elements do you see in argentine art of the last ten or fifteen years?
Fortunately, I believe there is a painting rebirth.
