Capturados por la luz
The presence of light in art is an essential theme.
During Middle Ages gold leaf were used to represent sunlight and the presence of the divine. Indirectly, light becomes a fundamental element in Gothic or Baroque architecture, which allowed to simulate within its buildings a suggestive divine atmosphere. And it would be impossible not to highlight how impressionism makes the representation of natural light the main actor of his work.
Light captures our attention, because beyond its beauty, there would be no life without it. Light creates, illuminates and transforms.
But not only natural light is a source of inspiration. Artificial light has also found a place within this creative universe, being in the 60's when the avant-garde movements began to experiment with this element.
In our previous exhibition we reflected on the language of color and its capacity to influence us. But what are colors if not light in decomposition?
That is why with this new collective exhibition we want to reflect on the use of light as a tool of expression in art. Reflect on how artists have incorporated light in their works and how light is able to catch us with its undeniable transforming capacity.
