THE URGENT BESTIARY OF ROBERT NAVA

Standing before the expressive forcefulness of Mexican-American Robert Nava (East Chicago, USA, 1985) can be risky. At first glance, the primitivism in the technique used in his canvases is shocking in the conversion of the strength of the stroke and the basics of the gesture into a language that agglutinates a brute force. Perhaps for that reason, the usual tendency of those who face his work is to quickly pigeonhole it out of the academic, out of that refinement that is presupposed -although less and less- to those who fill the room of a museum, to let themselves be carried away by the urgency of expression in front of that pretended good taste.

HACKING PERCEPTION

The experience proposed by Martina Servio Olavide is composed of two parts, one that invokes dying and the other, as an organic counterpoint, living. The first, "dying", is represented by a non-naturalistic play, while the second, "living", manifests itself as an exhibition in an art gallery. Through these two dimensions, the artist challenges the viewer to question their understanding of self and others, and to explore a wide range of interpretations.
