NATUREZA VIVA>>Galería Manuel Márquez, Pinturas:::13-Marzo>>13 Abril 2009/ Ourense.

"Living nature is the title of the exhibition of Antía Sanchez (Vigo, 1975) in which landscapes can be seen this past year. Cies Islands view from Cabo Home, love flowers that come in between the rocks or a couple on the shore of a lake in Poland. Although often paints the natural, in this series of works were performed mainly in the workshop, excursions from the camera. A preview image capture at a time of day in a particular location, the side away from direct observation and the other allows more time.

Some vestiges of landscape painters, Claude Monet, Friedrich and Peter Doig, with unusual combinations of colors enter the dream, a mystery that stains the fields and condenses an environmental mood, as if painted from a branch, a reed, a trace cloud.

There is an art which does not qualify, prior to the classrooms and teachers, prior to consciousness. This is the case Antía Sanchez, "the painter of biology" that is dedicated to rescuing universes where there's life in such detail, to dissolve in the painting itself, in what he paints. Plains calm blue peaks in the daylight, days of wind moving the blades of grass, animals whizzing by in the evening. Kidnapped by the sensations establishes a conversation face to face with greens softened edges, for example - "And there are flowers on your shirt!. - In your meadow, ma'am. "The result is paintings that breathe and produce a sudden see. Catch the appearance of time on the web without losing its elusive nature.

You have to look at his hands like a pianist to explore from where these remote and splendid landscapes. Subjective landscapes landscapes. "

Vanesa Diaz.



“We don’t inherit the land from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children” (Native American proverb)

There’s something that persists in painting: the creator’s look, the subject’s experience capable of creating and recreating something in the world that usually passes unnoticed. To Paul Klee it’s making the invisible visible, discovering the skeleton of things to Cezanne or a small sensation to Matisse.

Painting takes what’s native far away and then returns. Because it creates a place. It is a residence. Painting knows that nature is older, and something in her holistic condition survives in the work. From Claude Monet’s water lilies to the canoe in the water by Peter Doig. From the portraits of women and interiors with windows of Vanessa Bell to Tarsila do Amaral’s naive painting and tropicalism. From the almost hallucinatory flowers by Séraphine Louise to Georgia O’Keefe’s petals of blurred contours which lead to abstraction; a desert flower transformed into a landscape that opens like an eye, or a tornado. The surreal shades of Leonora Carrington and the conjugal trees of Max Ernst. Memoirs of a Nomad (1979) by Marie Marevna and the creatures flying over the roof of Chagall's friend. Even in Maruja Mallo‘s The Ether Travelers and in Remedios Varo’s science fiction, the paint retains a strangeness. It’s an accomplice of secret interconnections. It’s a witness to the multiple relationships between all things. And it displays delicious variations of that sense of vitality.

The heterogeneous and eclectic work of Antía Sanchez (Vigo, 1975) includes works on paper, collages, drawings and oil paintings on various surfaces and objects such as palettes, trays or suitcases. It uses images from magazines and book illustrations from which shapes are cut and elements of memories extracted to be developed on the canvas in an attempt to arrest what one might stare at for a lifetime: the framed here and now. The work recovers the pictorial genre that Henry Rousseau—the customs officer—called portrait-landscape whose marginality offers balance represented by the integration of the human figure in the landscape as if it were its natural state over time.

The artist emerges in autobiographical work and paints the cyclical regeneration inherent in all matter, the continuous process of birth and death. Although faithful to change, some things recur; a symbolic repertoire that displays her personal universe, a persistent series of figures: the bird, the flower, women or the heart in an animal's body. Guided by intuition she enters the landscape as if she entered a dream.

Vanesa Diaz, Critic and writter for ARTNOTES.
