Luis Gordillo. Aproximación-aproximándose

  • Art, Painting

Time Out says

Luis Gordillo has used and relied on photography throughout his career, first in a functional way, as a model, and later in a more consciously creative way, even as way to search within paintings. In the 1970s, Luis Gordillo employed the means of black-and-white photography to many ends, but perhaps the most important and that which has been remained the longest is the analysis of organic elements in painting, neutralizing and dehumanizing the expression. This exhibition marks a point of growth in Luis Gordillo's photographic work, in which the artist seeks to create a space where painting and photography converse and interact. Gordillo is still interested primarily in painting as a physical question; however, the technical intervention of photography creates a dialectical tension, a mental space in which to grow.
