DESCRIPTION

United under the title Configuraciones, the artists Rodney Samuelson from California and Santiago Adeoye from Barcelona, present their most recent works.
Samuelson offers us the paradigm of a certain kind of “horror vacui” (filling of the entire surface of an artwork with detail) illustrated through the elaboration of an amalgam of kaleidoscopic characters, with a delicate, imaginative and meticulous graphic simplicity which takes one back to a primitive innocence full of vitality.
Adeoye, nonetheless, using the Venus of Willendorf as his sole motif, induces us to a more hidden and dream-like reflection of that which is remote. By combining, in an unusual manner, an icon of the past with signs from the present, he opens the door to a game of reciprocal decontextualization of the figures to which he gives shape.
