FIGURE AND SPACE

The allure of silent spaces, and figures that interact within them.

 

Take a video tour of our booth

 

Figure and Space brings together the work of seven Colombian artists whose expressions, although quite different, work around the exploration of this theme. The manner in which they combine space, figures and surfaces, result in alluring works that impact with their subtlety and beauty. 

 

Pablo Arrazola and Armando Castro's subjects exist within vast spaces. These figures interact with the materials they've been drawn on, be it cardboard or paper. The atmosphere that surrounds them brings silence and mystery to the works, drawing the observer in.

 

Teresa Curea takes drawing to the third dimension by assembling individual cut outs, drawn with ink, watercolor and pencils. Her compositions create fascinating surrealist worlds full of imaginary characters, objects and nature. 

 

Pablo Posada-Pernikoff's abstract works show his fascination with light, shadow and time. In his recent works the artist deepens his study of light and its manipulation, through the combination of intaglio, gold and silver leaf and minerals. 

 

Carlos Alarcon, like Arrazola and Castro is a consummate draftsman. He produces either miniature or very large format works. In this exhibition he is presenting miniatures belonging to a series titled "Par/adoxes." This body of work couples objects, animals and people in a very surrealist and humorous manner.

 

Finally, Pedro Ruiz and Santiago Uribe-Holguin use their art to take over most of the paper or canvas' space. They command it with the use of bold colors and shapes. Although one is abstract and the other is figurative, their presence is always forceful and visible.

 

These seven artists offer the public a view into Colombia's fascinating artistic expression, where authenticity, quality, aesthetics and a wonderful creativity prevail. 

 

Beatriz Esguerra Art has been a proud promoter of her country's artists in Latin America and the United States. The gallery’s 7th consecutive presentation at the DAF demonstrates its dedication to supporting her artists and its admiration for the Dallas and Texas art community which continues to grow and evolve.
