BUENOS AIRES - MAX GÓMEZ CANLE'S EXHIBITION THAT, WITHOUT WORDS, SAYS EVERYTHING - RUTH BENZACAR GALLERY
Vivir así: sin palabras (Living like this: without words) it’s titled. The current exhibition of Max Gómez Canle in the Ruth Benzacar gallery in Buenos Aires does not contain curatotial text, only a gallery of images that accompany the viewer from the birth of the idea to its display in space.
“As zones of passage towards parallel dimensions; As surprising meeting places between bucolic nature and mental structure, Max Gómez Canle's landscapes are presented with the forcefulness that only points of no return have. Something in the image opens the door to another reality and one lets oneself be carried away without trembling: the references are reassuring, caressing; mountains, stones and trees endorse the smoothness of that transition. Even the geometric-constructive bursts forth without violence, convincing us of its consonance with the natural world.
We can come to admit that there is an affinity of centuries between clouds and stairs ...
… A handful of utopian landscapes mounted on the certainty that it is possible to try a new and anachronic painting ”*
