JOSE’ ORTEGA CORONEL, Venezuela
Genesis de la materia
Between figuration and abstraction, between narrative richness and formal rigor are the works of the “floating world” of Jose Gregorio Coronel Ortega. Oleogrammi of light, in which transparency plays an important role. Sign and color that denies itself when you light, metaphor, lightness. His works are plastic forms that fit each other in a harmonious way, without tension.
In Genesis of matter, Coronel plays the alien presence through a beam of light that penetrates into strange metal objects. Between light and shadow, color marks a two-dimensional image.
The pictorial search of Coronel looks combine the fantasy genre with the metaphysical world of Sironi and Carra, inventing a futuristic classic, in which a new living being pseudoumano has replaced our human race, and now dominates the center of a universe still suffocating . These works, these, showing fragments of space on the edge of dissolution entropic, precognition on the destinies of mankind, dazzling visions.
