ABRIGO DE LUZ / Alejandro Corujeira con una scintilla di Giorgio Griffa
Case Chiuse #11 by Paola Clerico
Case Chiuse HQ presents Abrigo de Luz, the first Italian exhibition by Alejandro Corujeira who, in turn, invited Giorgio Griffa to join him.
At the beginning of our dialogue with Corujeira, we asked which Italian artist he particularly admired. Without a moment’s hesitation he told us with deep awareness of the work of Giorgio Griffa, who accepted the invitation to participate with a “spark”: a canvas of 1970.
Corujeira’s abstraction is balanced and deeply pondered. The artist’s complex and delicate process engages with pure painting, drawing, literature, poetry, music, numbers, dreams, memory and science.
Combining pencil, graphite, acrylic, watercolour, the artist’s sinuous lines undulate and intersect over fields of colour forms and cellular silhouettes. Corujeira fills the canvas through layers of semi-transparent paint, giving geometric forms and colours a weightless nature. With these few elements, his work successfully captures a never-ending sense of rhythmic and palpitating movement, inviting the viewer to live an experience of absolute contemplation.
Case Chiuse by Paola Clerico thank Cecilia Brunson Projects, London, for the precious collaboration and Archivio Giorgio Griffa, Turin, for the brilliant participation.
