ENLACE ARTE CONTEMPORÁNEO Gallery (Av. Pardo y Aliaga 676, San Isidro) announces the opening of the collective exhibition RASGOS EMOTIVOS, next Thursday, March 3, with works from renown Chilean artists. This exhibition brings together a selection of works by eleven Chilean artists who have met with success both at home and abroad: Pedro Tyler, Andrés Vio, Cristián Velazco, Claudia Peña, Matil de Huidobro, Catalina Mena, Paula Dünner, Lorenzo Moya, Jorge Vilches, Amelia Errázuriz, and Alejandro Quiroga. The show’s curator, Ernesto Muñoz, states: “The underlying concept of the aesthetic framework of art in society has positioned the painting as the most widely-disseminated form of artistic expression for over five hundred years now. This same framework is evident in these artists, who are divided into three core groups. The first group is that of landscapes. Amelia Errázuriz deconstructs the landscape using raw materials. Jorge Vilches’ work combines childhood dreams of war games, drawing parallels with the art of the comic. Alejandro Quiroga looks to the glazes of the Renaissance, nourishing a landscape of minimal expression. Lorenzo Moya joins color and form, uniting the landscape and the gaze of the unreal. The second group addresses the discourse of woman. This gender discourse is not constructed from a position of vehemence, but rather that of Penelope’s wait, in the case of Matilda Huidobro, with her psychological relationship of the woman in the dressing room offering a sort of pretext. Claudio Peña offers images of perverse dreams. Paula Dünner brings an artisan’s touch to her materials, working wonders with felt. The fourth artist included here paints without painting, presenting to us the most audacious of still lifes. The third group works with space, where the influence of Pre-Columbian roots may be clearly seen in the geometric interpretations of order and precision. Andrés Vio focuses on the unique, dividing the multiplicity of the morning paper. Cristian Velasco oscillates between the geometric and verism. Pedro Tyler makes use of tragedy, draping it in the mechanical.” Rasgos emotivos (Emotional Traits) is part of an itinerant exhibition project that will start at Galería Enlace (Lima, Peru), later travelling to the Museo de Arte Moderno in Cuenca, Ecuador and the Memorial de América Latina in Sao Paulo, Brazil. This major exhibition may be viewed through March 26, from Monday through Saturday, 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. No entry fee.
