Catching Light and Movement brings together a revealing selection of artworks by the emerging Ecuadorian artist Carla Alvarez Aguirre (Quito, 1989) who transformed the experience of having been born with Asperger's syndrome into a kaleidoscope of creative visions.

Too Busy, 
acrylic on canvas 
25.5 x 27.5 in

With the ability to display a universe of her own, Carla´s  artwork shares aesthetic features with those movements of the postwar period that learned from the art of children or the mentally different and thus enriched the history of art. Like the members of the CoBrA group, Carla paints with intuitive strength, transforming her fantastic imagination into pictoric expressionist gestures without fear of the stridency of color.  She portrays characters in atmospheres that have the freedom of the oneiric. Nonetheless she includes eventual references to iconic places and like Leonora Carrington, she tells stories in her artworks. Each painting corresponds to a literary text invented by her with the imaginative sharpness of a short story. 

 

Carla Alvarez Aguirre

Disobeying the Renaissance perspective and challenging compositional conventions, Carla's work makes us "cross the mirror" and opens the way to deep layers of the psyche. Like Dubuffet's "Art Brut", her work exerts fascination and is also connected to the fantastic eye of the Surrealists. If the avant gardists of the 20th century represented movement in space with repetitions or juxtapositions of figures, Carla multiplies the arms and legs of her characters and their faces with diverse expressions, with the aim to capture in the same place, an intense experience and the simultaneity of time and thought.

ABOUT THE GALLERY 
The project of Cevor Gallery, directed by Norma Ordoñez, who 
is also a painter, corresponds to the dream of a platform for 
Latin American and Ecuadorian art that welcomes 
philanthropic projects. Part of the funds raised go to the La 
Ventana de los Cielos Foundation, headed by singer and 
composer Ricardo Montaner and his wife, dedicated to 
children with different abilities.
