Abstract Landscapes by Muu Blanco
Nov 30, 2014
Miami, Dec 1, 2014 – Jan 31, 2015. In Ejercicios TCC N°1 exhibition Muu Blanco integrates a series of works that arise as an extension of aesthetic inquiries related to the dynamics of the urban as scenario of convergence between abstraction and landscape.
The exhibition includes an installation of pictures of the Abstract Landscapes serie (2002-2014), assembled with other images and materials. They become dense metaphors of the contemporary cities processes. This proposal includes photography Ella AAA (2008), two books of collages made in 2014 in New York City, as well as a web transmission of a poetic sound piece of Venezuelan art (2012).
Creation for Blanco is an experience where the links of the context production become dialectical synthesis: symbolic frame, collision and continued development of new meanings. Hence the need to confront traditions, materials, images, articulating a variety of sensitive perspectives, from the fragmentary construction of chaos meanings as a sign of our contemporary.
