Darío Pérez-Flores, (Valera, 1936) is considered amongst the most important Latin American Constructivist artists, whose main interest is the study of color and its capacity for stimulating perception, creativity and illusion. Despite his beginnings as a sculptor working with metal, light and Plexiglas, he now mainly produces paintings and assemblages, named Prochromatiques, in which vertical lines and elements predominate, alongside color degradés and contrasts. His whole body of work encompasses a lifetime of studies about optical and kinetic reverberance, a visual effect that happens when the viewer moves past the work. In other pieces, he uses motors that turn shapes in different speeds, creating a visual vibration by the movement generated. Pérez Flores has devoted his artistic career to developing through his rigorous and strict compositions, the relationship between the act of creating and the behavior of form and color along with movement and perception, much like his peers Soto and Cruz-Diez.
Israel Guevara (Mariara, 1961) is recognized for his works and studies in geometry and color. His colorful paintings of lines displayed in different overlapping “hard edge” grids and rhythms become a graceful display and a profound study of color and its behavior.
The works on view will provide the spectator with a unique opportunity to become acquainted to the most recent production of these well-recognized Venezuelan contemporary artists.
Paul Amundaraín (Caracas, 1980), the youngest of the group, is currently working intervened photographs and collages with scattered mirrors, paintings that deal with the notion of modernity in Venezuela.
Gino Donvito, (Gioia del Colle, Bari, Italy, 1954) lives and works in Gioia del Colle, town located in the Bari district, immersed in the native spirituality of Apulia, in the South of Italy. After a self-taught training development that took place between Florence and Paris, the artist decided to withdraw to his native land, Apulia, which he has always regarded as one of his dearest muses and a driving force behind his creativity. Recovering techniques of old times, Donvito works exclusively with birch wood, cured in advance with emery papers and processed with mordants and colored aniline. Every oeuvre of Gino Donvito summarizes a fine, knowledgeable and accomplished research, led in rigorous solitude, sustained by a precise spiritual preparation that pays respect to the incubation of the work in hand.
