Reviews

  • Casa de la Hacienda La Trinidad (HLTPC), Caracas

    In 1980, the exhibition Didáctica y dialéctica del color, by master of color Carlos Cruz-Diez (Venezuela, 1923), was held at the Universidad Simón Bolívar (USB), Caracas.

  • Ruth Benzacar, Buenos Aires

Artists

The passion caused by the great and sublime in nature, when those causes operate most powerfully, is astonishment; and astonishment is that state of the soul, in which all its motions are suspended, with some degree of horror.

Intricate simplicity

At the core of Ricardo Rendón's artistic process is the notion that there are endless possibilities of creation starting from an already given set of elements.

Beyond the vernacular-artistic manifestations that strive to understand what is produced in and from the Caribbean as an eclectic amalgamation of ancestral and cultural links, the work of artist Zilia Sánchez (1926) has developed amidst notions of rupture, which have a long tradition in the modern and contemporary art production of Latin America.
