Jorge Rios

About

The work of Jorge Rios transcends the flatness of ordinary visual language reaching the subtlety, ambivalence and complexity that we perceive more clearly like in other art forms such as music or poetry. Rios tries to establish through his art a link between the individual experience of reality and the totality of existence. Whether you call it God, the Truth, the Idea,the Spirit, the Da-sein, the Being, or the Nothingness… . In other words, “art for me has the mission of redeeming the being out of the mundanity of the human condition, by stimulating what is divine, universal and eternal in it.”

“My interest in painting emerges from a personal connection with the materiality of the medium itself, its physical qualities and possibilities. Also because of the particular relationship that exists between a painting and its existence in time. The timelessness of visual representation, compared to other temporal art forms, is its most significant property. The contrast between the stillness of a painting and our very existence within time, enhance our very awareness of temporality not only as an inevitable precondition of existence, but more importantly, as an ontological premise. Clouds in that sense, represent for me, the ultimate paradigm of ephemerality and impermanence, while at the same time of beauty and sublimity.”
