A Nostalgic Farewell to Summer at Galeria Dacil Posted on 11 Apr 21:29 , 0 comments
Article by Nora Wallenius.
To wish a sad farewell to summer here in Buenos Aires, Gallery dacil presents Summer Interlude. These paintings of the “mental condition” by artist convey a certain nostalgia, from the coming and going of the past and the seasons.
As the summer progressed, Bonzo’s paintings resemble a more dream-state, oscillations between wakefulness and sleep. Bonzo take random images from the past and present, but creates them with concrete shapes and colors. A simple cactus and a sun, yet flipped upside down.
These summer painting show the magic of mirage. The sharp edges of the rocks shine like diamonds. There is a tree perfectly lined in loneliness. Golden light that enters through the window with a single pot on the sable, with the shadow of a cactus. While images intersect, they also intertwine and convey a certain nostalgia, from the coming and going of the past.
Alejandro Bonzo was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He has studied at the History of Argentine Art workshop of Pablo Suarez, Contemporary Art with Laura Batkis, and performed clinical works with Jorge Gumier Maier. His works are displayed in public and private collections internationally.
Gallery dacil opened as a contemporary art gallery in 2006, and has sinced developed activity in the local and international market. It has introduced its exhibitions and installations through unconventional textiles, paintings, photographs, videos, and sculptures. Gallery dacil also collaborated on outreach projects of young artists, manages and coordinates art competitions, works with external curators, and generates new connections and platforms with the corporate world.
