Pablo Atchugarry, Agustín Cárdenas, Eduardo Ramírez-Villamizar
Three different sculptors, different aesthetics, different three-dimensional propositions—all of them interrelated, nonetheless, despite their differences—come together in Diálogo Tridimensional, an exhibition that combines the works of the Cuban-French Agustín Cárdenas, the Colombian Eduardo Ramírez Villamizar and the Uruguayan Pablo Atchugarry. A common characteristic that unites them—each artist situated in his own period in time, with his own cultural and human circumstances—resides in the indissolubility of the universality and the historic-artistic level of their work. Working at different times and in different scenarios, these artists have maintained current fundamental canons of avant-garde trends in the history of art. Each of them is an “abstract” artist who has given form to marvels of modern art and who has ventured into areas connected to man’s spiritual and material endeavors. Each has contributed solutions to the objectivism of concrete abstraction by manifesting the sensuality of cultures connected to the earth, to human beings, to the culture of a “symbolic” American continent that refuses to reduce its existence solely to phenomenological circumstances.
Connected to a society’s conscious reality, the trio formed by Cárdenas, Ramírez Villamizar and Atchugarry addresses man’s imagery with regards to a conscious perception of physical and spiritual space. Understanding, looking, seeing, the sculptures that will be occupying one same space, Galería Durban Segnini, offer the opportunity to participate in a dialog with art’s three-dimensional conceptual reality.
