Arturo Pacheco Lugo : A Statement of Presence


IMG_1658

“In the beginning of painting is a struggling soul,

thus painting is a phenomenon of the soul.

The work must redeem a passionate soul.

In a poetic image, the soul states its presence.”

G. Bachelard.

To look at a painting by Lugo is like sifting through an archeological dig, moving through layer upon layer of earth.  Barely recognizable forms emerge into a conscious gestalt where meanings galvanize through the viewer’s own personal references and connections.

“I see myself as an abstract painter who enjoys freedom of expression.
However, we are all like ‘ swallows sitting on the wire of tradition,’ so from time to time I sin by creating objective art for feeling a communication with a greater public.  I adore every manifestation of visual art and enjoy crossing over and going back with the passion of a child who has gotten a new toy. I am grateful for every moment I can paint.”

Sigal Ron is a painter who walks the fine line between completely non-objective painting and figurative painting with equal ease and grace. She  commands both sides of that artistic differentiation with prowess and inevitability.  Her non-objective paintings rush at us with volumes of hurtling textures, colors and glimmering light. Her figurative works walk with prowess all the way from realistic representation through graphic depiction to sighs of abbreviated yet essential abstractions. Her painterly touch is comprised of deft command, searing insight and relentlessly well timed orchestration. Bravo Sigal Ron! My hat is off to you!

About Victor Slepushkin

 

What is Objective Reality? Does it exist independent on us, or everything around us is nothing else but the fruit of collective fantasy?

When we fall asleep, our subconsciousness starts creating its own reality, free from causal-consequent limits, chaotic, sometimes frightening, but always beautiful in its own special way. In my works I try to set my subconsciousness free when Im awake, to get free from causes, meanings, and to get back to the primordial Chaos. But without a particle of Order, Chaos wont be the absolute one.

I believe that every person,every living being is the fractal God, in other words, everyone of us is God himself capable of changing the surrounding reality or creating the new one. I mean God not in the religious sense, but rather in mystic-cosmological, God who has embodied into the infinity of similar copies to realize the Reason of all reasons – God Himself.

Thus to me my works mean something more than just pictures – I consider them avatars of thought-forms and new realities with their deities….
