Alejandro Corujeira(Buenos Aires, 1961)
With Alejandro Corujeira we find a subtle and evocative artistic practice that invites the beholder to the pleasure of contemplation. Corujeira’s work is paused and quiet, something that certainly imbues in each and every one of his pieces, that makes us appreciate his work in a more conscious and receptive way. When looking at his work there is an on-going sensation that behind the brushstrokes, graphisms and chromatic values there is something else that transcends the discipline of painting itself and roots in other artistic expressions such as poetry or music. As a result, his body of work is not only a mere formal exercise but rather an investigation of something way more complex and deep that goes beyond the one dimensionality of the canvas. Far from any form of spirituality the evocative power of his paintings and the mesmerising beauty of the represented geometric forms generate an atemporal feeling that points to a remote present.
