Upheaval of Color by Victor Alvarez-Brunicardi
Updated: Apr 30, 2019
From May 18th until June 2nd . Opening May 18th, 2019 7:00 p.m.
“In this series of abstract inks, acrylics and watercolors there is the deliberate intention of capturing movement in a fraction of time. At that very moment, things flow in a direction or turn around themselves. There is a friction that generates heat which generates color. The images sometimes stay quiet but they are always trying to distract your attention away from what you want to see; towards something else on the paint field. These abstract images do not want you to recognize the hidden faces, the deliberately unfamiliar things; used unintentionally but unavoidably in the composition process.”
“Some of the pieces in this exhibition are very active; this is self-evident. The quieter ones hide a more intense drama and will erupt at any moment; you just have to know it and be ready. There are no regulations for the use of color in this series as a group; some of the pieces are almost monochromatic; in others, the complementary colors flirt shamelessly with each other fighting for power. There is no academic control in the definition of style and media in this series; lines over brush strokes, over accidental textures, over applied roughness, over lines that I forgot before. This exercise might seem pretentious, but it is very simple and its success would lay on the dynamics that can be built between the spectator and the individual piece of art. Just some complicity is required; then these pieces will be able to live apart from each other.”
