Jorge Cabieses: Resonant Relationships at Dot Fiftyone Gallery
"The status of the image as such is the constant questioning that structures my work. My current project is inscribed in the liberation of any symbolic association with reality. In this equation, I have tried to set a discreet bias to what is post-modern, that which is dedicated to sacralize the image manufacturer to the detriment of the image. The very painter disappears and the spectator used in the discourse of figuration ends up lost facing the cancellation of history and the vindication of what is essential: shape and color. Thus, in my work I try, through a problematization of space, to confront certain canons of the Latin American image: the obsession with narrative, an exacerbated sentimentalism, and the morbidity of what is private. Facing them, a constructive tension is established in search of something more universal, despite my own anguish for harmony and thanks to an intimate conviction of my own elements.
Amplifying and multiplying the presence of geometric forms through the generation of repeated patterns and a pre-visualized display of shining color spectrums, I build images pointing to diverse cultural sources."
