When man needed to have memory, writing and paper were invented. Paper has accompanied man since time immemorial. It had been invented in China long before its arrival in Europe in the seventh century when the Arabs introduced it on the Iberian Peninsula.
That necessity to remember or to keep spells and prayers, images and visions found in paper the most economical way to convey those messages and capture what people considered essential at that time: for copyists, illuminators and miniaturists, i.e., the artists of word and color.
This exhibition wants to give account of this artists’ necessity to express themselves on paper, and the use of the techniques that are closer to their ideas and artistic image, their subjectivity and singularity in their work on paper.
This art show features monochrome paintings with broad brushstrokes, polychrome ones with subtle lines. With different materials – inks, acrylics, temperas, oil paintings – the artists who have been invited to exhibit their work at Buenos Aires Fine Arts show their art pieces with paper and its infinite combinations, an old fellow and tool of humanity.
