Opening July 2nd 18:00
The first individual exhibition of the colombian artist, Johan Barrios, it is opening at the Gallery Victor Lope on the 2nd of july, 2015. His last work, “Ejercicios de ruptura”, it is composed by a series of pieces in which Johan investigates drawing’s expressive possibilities, the leitmotiv of his art work is the image in itself. On this occasion he talks about rupture, transgresion. He uses the portrayed characters, which are almost inanimates, as an excuse to make visible the modifications that are produced in the image by the elements found in the space where it is constructed. The role of his protagonists is a performative one. The people are transformed into compositional elements of the image, elements that exist to create a change, a movement, a line, an atmosphere, an object that can be transferred to the graphic universe. Johan explains that, “Ejercicios de ruptura it is a reflection about the transformation, the trangresion and the absence of the image in an ambiguous territory, as a metaphor of the immediate”.
