We are pleased to present a solo exhibition by Argentine artist Silvina Resnik. The artworks portray the urban life in Buenos Aires.
'This series of paintings of public spaces, in different locations within Buenos Aires, works, somehow, as a subjective portrait of this city where I was born and live. They are quick scenes; snapshots; fragments of the urban life. As with photographs, I make an attempt to capture the gesture; the instant; the movement; the rhythm of a city that, like any other metropolis, moves at a fast pace.' Silvina Resnik
'It's above an undefinable hinge where Resnik moves firmly, lovingly, with great naturalness, between the physical and interior realms; between clear connotation and lyrical rehearsal; amongst the unequivocal temperamental orchestration of color and shape, and the withdrawal of all impersonation of the painting into a more meditative state. The artist imposes not only a lesson of great style, but the notion that to paint is to know how to place oneself in front of the object being painted, which is equivalent to examining how to place oneself in front of the art work.' Eduardo Stupía
