ELENA GASTÓN NICOLÁS

Encounters: Nature and Culture
March 13 – April 3, 2018
Reception: Thursday, March 15, 2018 6-8 PM

Using the plastic, almost sculptural pigments of acrylics, as well as the more old-masterly medium of oils, Elena Gastón Nicolás portrays worlds within worlds, as details come to include within themselves the contextual wholes from whence they derive. Often focusing on spiritual or mystical themes, her paintings of spiritual processes have come to mark a radical departure in her oeuvre. Rather than depend wholly on established symbologies to allude to the representative value of her figures, she simply depicts a particular object in all its ever-ramifying ambiguity. As a result, what we understand by the word “spirit” takes on a more developmental meaning, signaling the vital processes that permeate our planetary existence as a whole.

In
Camino de Baldosas Amarillas II and Camino de Baldosas Amarillas III the specificity of a natural setting takes on an uncanny universality, mirroring the rhythms and symmetries ordinarily reserved for more abstract paintings. A sort of yellow winding path snakes through the center of the composition, setting off the more verdant greens, browns, and blues that surround it. This contrasting blend of colors traces out a dynamic movement which the ordinarily static qualities of paint on canvas can rarely articulate.
