Rafael Gil + Michiko Hoshino + Julio Goya “Buenos Aires, Laberintos De Las Memorias”
This event has ended.
Printmaker Raphael Gil believes that walls reflect human history as it is. The Berlin Wall, which represent the end of the Cold War, is especially symbolic, he says. The countless scratches and stains sustained by walls through the passage of time stir the artist’s memory, drawing him into an inner world. Gil’s series on display here portrays the innumerable memories and evocations of time portrayed by walls.
Etcher Michiko Hoshino is captivated by the circular and multifaceted works of the Argentine poet Jorge Luis Borges. Through lithography methods using only a single deep-black color, she melds her internal world with Borges’s, creating conceptual and abstract prints.
Sculptor Julio Goya’s stainless steel sculptures are inspired by the masks of 16th century indigenous Argentinians and the masks he saw as a child used at the carnivals of Buenos Aires.
