Tetch Gallery invites you all to attend the opening night drinks for Sydney Fringe Festival Artist- Chico Cristobal’s exhibition “Circulation Series” – Wednesday 21st October – 6pm-8pm.
Exhibition runs from 19th September to 24th September.
“A strangeness hidden within the familiar and a familiarity hidden within the strange”
Immerse yourself in a unique artistic experience courtesy of Chico Cristobal’s engaging geometric paintings that explore the cycles of life and mystery of the creative soul. These works emit an almost hypnotic energy, inspiring a reverence usually reserved for religious art. Don’t miss it.
Read what artist Chico Cristobal has to say:
I developed a non-objective style of abstract painting where I explore the elements of art–lines, shapes, space, colours, and the aesthetics of the common and the ordinary. I play with the juxtaposition of geometry and the idea of the golden ratio and true beauty.
Art is usually about self-expression because as an artist, it is about trying to put it into a form that we, and others, can come to terms with. Just like a poet, musician, actor, and visual artist, all have a desire to express what one feels and create something of great value. There is that universal desire to connect with other people in some way; to tell them about oneself.
One of the functions of an artist is to make a statement of some kind. With that in mind, I use my art to communicate an idea, an emotion, or a purpose. This product of my self-expression can help others because there will always be people who feel the same way but they cannot express it themselves. I’d like these people to identify with me and draw encouragement, purpose, and excitement about what is being expressed.
I enjoy the process. It’s fun making things, the fun of mixing colours on the palette, applying paint to a canvas, passing the hours in a studio with my favourite music playing. The important subject of my paintings are the expression, and the sincerity of my soul thinking that I am a human being just like any other human being on earth, but that I came to this world to give something that I think can be everlasting.
