NEW YORK, NY.- Frederico Sève Gallery
presents Motion and Distortion, a selection of six oil paintings and a video by Patricia Claro seen at the gallery from April 11th to June 1st.
Patricia Claro explores the intricate theme of water and landscapes. She says, Water is an infinite source of images. Claros creations mostly follow classical pictorial techniques, incorporating the use of such techniques, as sfumato, to capture the fragmented reflections of the environment. In combination with her remarkable use of light, that helps to translate these sequential pieces into pure movement, energy and yet serenity. Some have been quoted calling her pieces Liquid Landscapes.
This selection of six sequential pieces and video is an exploration of the Rio Bueno, which is located in the South of Chile. With these works Patricia Claro strikingly answers the question, how to render a substance that in essences has no color or shape? They depict the complexity and reality of water, including all of its illusions.
The artist observes,
I also bring with me an absence. The water is no longer there. There are colors and the idea of an image that will ultimately end up being water again but in the form of an illusion.
This is Patricia Claro's very first solo show in New York.
Art critic, Denise Colson once said, Patricia Claro's liquid landscapes have made me believe that painting will continue to exist in its own right.
Patricia Claro was born and lives in Santiago, Chile. She received a degree in both Visual Arts and Design from Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile. Her work has been featured in such books as Fresh Paint and has also received exceptional reviews from Art Districts, ED, ALLIMITE and EL MERCURIO.
