LAS TRES CALAVERAS
Galpón 0 – Periférico Caracas
Las Tres Calaveras was the first solo show of artist Jaime Gili in his home town Caracas, after many years living abroad. The exhibition was conceived as a monumental installation around three very large paintings, the ‘Calaveras’ that lend their title to the show.
From the Review by Carlos E. Palacios in ArtNexus: “The artist has re-dimensioned his personal view of abstract-geometric painting, adding an interest in the constructed environment through the use of posters, as he does in some of his public interventions (...) Gili has introduced new meanings in the imposed purity of historic abstraction. He radicalises and contaminates its rigorous order and crystalline rationality, violating the style from the fringes and inwards, with apparently careless, subconsciously controlled forms. The resultant works are halfway between irony and the questioning of abstraction.”+ PDF: TEXT BY JUAN LEDEZMA
