“DREAMSCAPES AND OTHER TALES” is an online-only group show that brings together a selection of works on paper by artists by Evru/Zush (Spain,1946), Catalina Jaramillo (Colombia, 1981), Sandra Vásquez de la Horra (Chile,1967), Gino Rubert (México, 1969) and the collective AES+F (created in Moscow in 1987).
Through different figurative iconographies, the featured artworks explore, complex oneiric landscapes and imaginative scenarios. With a unique aesthetic and stylistic signature, each of them engages with the forces of fear and desire that stand behind the oneiric machinery of the individual and the society at large. Making reference, in some cases, to the psychoanalysis literature, or abandoning themselves to the intuitive process of creation, their authors put into scene particular mythologies, depicting social allegories and paradoxes, opening unexpected windows toward utopias, magic or spiritual realms, or composing tales of erotic scenarios.
While some of these artists are known for their works on paper (Sandra Vasquez de la Horra, Catalina Jaramillo and, partially, Evru/Zush), others have employed this medium occasionally, to study the themes and subjects of their paintings or tell particular stories (Gino Rubert) or as part of multi-media projects that include porcelain sculptures and video (AES+F).
