Alternative Abstractions – Ludic Geometries is a group show that gathers the most recent works from Colombian artist Danny Esquenazi and Venezuelan artists Aureliano Parra and Reymond Romero. Their appearance in the art horizon around the mid to late nineties, marks the conceptual rupture where the great abstract geometricians and the kinetics masters had already happened; these artists belong to a generation where there were no predominant trends, no artistic movements, and in which everything had already been done. However, the personal path taken by Esquenazi, Parra, and Romero demonstrates that it is possible to explore alternative trends in abstraction.
Instead of brushes and canvases, Esquenazi, Parra, and Romero “paint” three-dimensional geometries by playing with cubes and wooden supports, Mylar acetate plastic tubes, and threads, respectively. The exhibition Alternative Abstractions – Ludic Geometries explores their most recent investigations, and sets forth a relationship between art and game that expands the observer’s action and perception fields.
