The Tree of Life - Cristina Santander

From Thursday, August 10th to Monday, September 4th.


This artist’s paintings allow us to see a “lace of translucent paper, penetrated by the space that empties and fills it” (Cristina Santander).
And in fact, going around this exhibition is enjoying such different and similar paintings at the same time because of the movement Cristina Santander grants to her works.
Making use of a brush, of watercolor, oil, acrylic and tangible elements she develops a special vision to describe attitudes, reminiscences, and existential moments.
Paper has a presence in these works. It is present through the weave of threads the artist follows, navigates, or sometimes highlights. This makes paper not a mere bearer of color but an essential part of the vision the artist imagined.
It allows the observer to engage in a careful reading of the paintings, where he/she can recognize silhouettes in a delineated landscape with the plastic elements she chooses, or maybe, these elements have chosen her to be deployed in her paintings the same way that lace she found in the embroidered handkerchief from her childhood.
