BBuzzArt - Discover Future Masterpiece



The idea in this piece was to achieve depth by applying layers one over another; and even though the original idea was not to get a representation of the components of the heart per se; inevitably the result shows an abstract version of it. This painting belongs to the series "Nodes". I decided to use the steel gray color as the context of each piece of this series; first, because it is most used in architecture, it is simple, but an elegant color that represents modernism; but I also use it with no other purpose of balancing the intensity of the red, orange and magenta tones of the polygon; and while the white and blue outlines, reinforce the hierarchy of the central element, also help to take away the seriousness and rigidity of it.

Series description by my guest curator.

In Nodes, Jaime Domínguez, paradoxically deploys a
hyperdimensional project, through painting, a traditionally two-dimensional medium. The polygons that first show represent the limiting contour, the boundary to another field of
color, are also the window, or the shadow, of these hyperdimensional figures, which charge volume from the color, the frames and lines that cross them, announcing a complexity of a greater space. Before the spectator, what starts being a flat space, with an attentive look, begins to unfold many dimensions, projecting various
conceptual depths, as well as physical.

The monochromatic and flat backgrounds in the paintings, place the observer in an abstract geometric plane, alien to material reality, but full of formal and dimentional possibilities. The paradox also intensifies, while the painting is full
of smooth colors and straight lines, in some cases almost technical, and that nevertheless, make up
a spatial and formal ambiguity. What would seem almost technical from the side of the eye, is
Inaprensible, a detailed look, reveals that the figures and the light, exist only instantaneously, only to give that presence to another stage of the same work.

Eventually these figures escape the plane of the painting and become pieces to the interior of the room, where the spatial limitations are compensated, by the movement, but above all for the operations and visual games that are possible,
blurring the boundaries between the immediate and the distant.
