A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

"ArreguA-naEURO(t)s palpitations of color and light and arrested movement awaken our sublimated vision. His paintings seem to force our entire being to experience its livingness as an insatiable yearning and questing of the eyes." aEURO" from the Foreword by Tess Gallagher Born in Mexico in 1935 and a resident of Washington State for nearly five decades, Alfredo ArreguA-n has long been recognized as a major force in pattern painting. His canvases are tapestries that mingle diverse and interpenetrating influences and images: the traditional crafts of his native MichoacA!n; the lush rainforests of his homeland and of the Pacific Northwest; Japanese ukiyo-e prints; sacred and endangered animals; gods and and totemic figures; icons like Frida Kahlo and CA(c)sar ChA!vez; and motifs including masks, eyes, and abstractly patterned tiles. But ArreguA-naEURO(t)s paintings, for all the apparent flatness of their surfaces, conceal an astonishing depth of perspective. The basis of their composition is a grid of colorful patterns applied to superimposed planes, and below the surface of each completed painting are many others, transformed by the artistaEURO(t)s strategic occlusions and erasures. The result is an exuberant, phosphorescent visual interplay in which images combine to form other images, yielding a potent narrative power and pointing up the profound, ambiguous symbiosis between human beings and nature, fiction and reality, and the natural and supernatural worlds. Lauro Flores reveals Alfredo ArreguA-n as "a genuinely American painter, in the real, hemispheric sense of this term" aEURO" an artist of magic, mystery, and revelation whose place in the history of North American art has already been secured.
