Argentinean art reinvents the landscape

The Argentinean artist Eduardo Stupia lands in the UK, his art brimming with a symbolism seeking to spark the imagination of the British public.

 

 

Arte argentino 5In the words of the artist himself, his works are conceived in the elusive space which exists “between doing and thinking”.

Stupia’s pictures are being shown in London and his exhibition Reinventing the landscape makes its appearance in London, having already been shown in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Ian Rosenfel, the exhibition’s organiser has remarked that “Stupia is at the height of his career in spite of his work in the seventies being focused on classical figurative representation”.

Stupia is well known for his graphical representations on canvas and paper. The Argentinean experiments with black and white using charcoal, watercolour, pencil and ink.

The British public will now be able to enjoy the imaginary landscapes conceived in the mind of this artist, but Stupia intends for the viewer to reach their own conclusions and thoughts upon seeing his pictures, which are expressed on large canvases.

Arte argentino 6In a statement to Telam magazine, Stupia stated that each of his pieces are “the result of other works that have gone beforehand, representing the most visible layer in this geological construct”.

The artist says he is very happy at being given this chance to show off his work: “it is very difficult for a Latin American artist, let alone an Argentinean, to have their own exhibition in one of the major European capitals, particularly London”.
