ABOUT

Art gallery located in the center of Madrid.
Our activity focuses on national and international contemporary art as a reflection of the world around us, as well as, on artists who care about the socio-cultural integration of their artistic interests.
Our commitment is with the approach of the art to the beholder. We see the receiver as the subject of a reality that plays the main role of the current creation that is presented in the form of question, curiosity, research or discussion.
Using for this the freedom of the language, determined by each discipline, the formal infinity that the materials provide, and the multiplicity of interpretations that suggest the contents.

    Detailed Description : Oliver Czarnetta studied art history and philosophy and simply could not hold a position as a mere observer. His commitment to art was, is, much higher. Probably is his profound knowledge of art and philosophy what leads him to reconsider some interesting aspects of human relationships. And is probably the excessive discipline in his studies what forces him to leave the development of his praxis to random, trying to act with absolute freedom when dealing with forms, concepts, and materials.

Lecuona and Hernández, who started their work together in 1999, also have worked as cultural managers and are experts in Theory of the Arts. They have participated in more than ninety solo and group projects, exhibiting more regularly in projects of an international nature. In this sense it is worth mentioning their Spanish representation in the XI Biennial of Havana, in the X International Biennial of Cuenca-Ecuador, in the Biennial of DaKar Off 06 and in the II Biennial of art, architecture and landscape of the Canary Islands.

    Detailed Description : The artistic project of Lecuona and Hernández is based on the process of the construction of images, on how to contribute physicality and materiality, to a set of abstractions that make up our historical, social and cultural imaginary. For them it is fundamental to understand how to build an image that is updated as it is affected by the cultural keys of the context in which it is registered at that moment. For this reason they are constantly reviewing and revisiting their own work and therefore they are interested in the specific site, because the work in a specific context always challenges and manifests itself as a continuous and living process. Somehow, in their relationship with the images, they continually look for their other side, the backstage and the scaffolding. Another of their most obvious interests is to maintain the validity of the pictorial memory, amplifying and resizing the painting, tearing it from the frame, from the canvas and freeing it from the frame, to insert it in a process of continuous materialization and dematerialization. Their desire is to talk about pictorial tension, how the gaze is constructed. For both, it is essential to participate in the physical construction of the pieces, which always have a performative component and to explore the different means and forms with which to "cook" the art under a firm experimental will. Hence also that they slide without modesty for any type of artistic medium be installation, performance, video, etc. They understand the work of the artist as that of a producer of relationships and experiences in a field always expanded and always porous.

    Biography : He came to Spain 30 years ago for the sole purpose of deepening in the knowledge of painting materials and their use; in them we can find the essence of his work, in them he summarizes the target he pursues, purity. Looking at old paintings, even back to Altamira’s, we find the argument that crosses and guides the story of man wich he understands as the art’s itself, he happens to discover on the way the conclusions of Jackson Pollock coming to justify the link between occidental and oriental practices in art in the only posible way, through the harmony between man and nature, through the spirit.

    Detailed Description : His involvement is absolute, his concern is vital, his work tireless. The color has a dominant role in many of his works, suggesting a call which evokes a beat, the beat that marks the tempo that achieves harmony between man and the universe. But he goes further, enters absolute complicity with his work, mixing pigments with paper mache forming a paste that will drop smoothly on the carrier as a farmer who plows leaving the grooves on which to sow his future, always uncertain.
