Fernando López Lage: The Pharmakon color in Galería del Paseo, Punta del Este
The gallery based in Punta del Este and Lima presents an exhibition by the Uruguayan artist Fernando López Lage.
The Pharmakon color is a state of toxicity, a catalyst of processes, a singular point of view, fragmented and pathologized. It shows multiple complexities about color and painting, its unrestricted use and pluriversality.
The color that is charged with semantics, with alchemy, derives from a polysemy where the contradictions of the structure of the painting converge. In the multiple layers and structures where the Pharmakon lives, the painting expands, generating its own history and configuration.
