Almost by Chance; Oscar Domínguez, Decalcomanía and its derivations
This exhibition includes a number of works from TEA Collection by Óscar Domínguez as a starting point to reflecting on automatisms and processes of gestural painting which are aimed at exploring and broadening the possibilities of this technique, so that Casi el azar presents the work of several international artists who have used the technique of decalcomanía in their experimentation on pictoria automatism.
Isidro Hernández Gutiérrez, curator.
Gabriel Roca exhibits four pieces of his black sand series. Black sand insertions inside glass, a video installation, and an ephemeral drawing. A holistic approach in the analisis of nature in the island.
Gabriel is a multidisciplinary artist whose final work is as important as the process. His work involves generating sounds, wind, movements and vibrations to create drawings with the matter. He manipulates native materials (sand, stones, pine needles), revising thus their traditional uses to arrive at a reinterpretation of our reality and our environment.
Works from Norwegian artist Bente Stokke, American painter Jeremy Everett, Wolfgang Tillmans, as well as from Gabriel Roca, Sema Castro and Suso de la Rosa are all displayed at the show, among other contemporary artists.
