Guillermo Kuitca


oil on canvas
11 3/4 x 15 3/4 inches

Inspired by the worlds of architecture, theater, and cartography, Argentinian artist Guillermo Kuitca continues to explore the many ways in which humans organize, understand, and translate the visual world. In a recent body of work, Kuitca takes on abstraction as his subject matter, using a pared-down, Cubist vocabulary of angles, lines, and shading to analyze the tensions in painting as space on a flat plane. The result is not an object articulated in a Cubist vocabulary, but a flat surface that looks topographical. In this untitled work from 2010, Kuitca layers a series of lines over the composition, reminiscent of the diagrammatic language that has intrigued him for years. Kuitca has participated in numerous international exhibitions, including the XVIII São Paulo Biennial, documenta IX, and the 2007 Venice Biennale. His work has been the subject of solo exhibitions worldwide and is included in numerous public collections.
