OTHER POSSIBLE WORLDS

Is a visual manifesto possible? How to show the possible dialogues between art and education? How many images are within each image? How many words are in each word? What's in between? With these questions, the Argentine artist Marina De Caro introduces us to her exhibition Tierra de las emociones perdidas (Land of Lost Emotions), at the Ruth Benzacar gallery in the city of Buenos Aires, which brings together her most recent production.

RONALD MORÁN OR THE DARK FABRIC OF LOCKDOWN

Artists who have that ability to approach and distance themselves from reality have always caught my attention. Ronald Morán, (Salvadoran) is one of them; in this case, he offers us a double distancing: the distancing of a mimetic tradition that recycles reality with repeated images to the point of vertigo and, on the other hand, the distancing forced by the Covid 19 pandemic.

SPECIAL DEFECTS - FERNANDO UHÍA IN NUEVEOCHENTA GALLERY

It is inevitable to mention the history of painting when we refer to the work of Fernando Uhía, since it seems in the first instance to allude to the theories of color, the purism of the medium and the ruptures of the mimetic representation that occurred during the emergence of the artistic avant-gardes in the first decades of the 20th century. However, Special Defects departs from such assumptions and invites the viewer to an aesthetic experience of color through a unique treatment of paint. The above, from a global language that is expressed through the construction of shapes and colors, which today are not only present in fine arts but also in design and advertising. " Luciana Rizo introduces in the curatorial text.

OdA ART GALLERY PRESENTS ITS OdE TO BLACK

To suppress detail and enhance harmony. Let matter arise, the very essence that is born from dispossession. To print of solemnity on the simple. Discover pure sensitivity in form. It is the absence of light. It is background and also figure. This exhibition proposes an ode to works in black color, freeing them from all drama. The representation of each piece is evident through the simplicity in the composition with the predominance of the flat, forceful color. The works are not explained or thought, they are only expressed. From the most subtle to the effective and concrete. Abstractions and geometric shapes, silhouettes, human faces and organisms. Conditionings and prejudices are not relevant. It is a formal and aesthetic choice for each artist, challenging to see beyond this present and uncertain time." expresses Laura San Martín, founder and curator of the Buenos Aires-based gallery.
