Huellas de un diálogo... (Footprints of a dialogue)

16:41

This is the title of a very particular exhibition at the Centro Cultural Recoleta: father and daughter, united by art.  Jorge Abot (Buenos Aires, 1941) and Natalia Abot Glenz (Buenos Aires, 1974) share one same space, allowing the interaction between their artworks.
"Huellas de un diálogo" - General view
Centro Cultural Recoleta, February 2015
The father, Jorge Abot, works in two dimensions and, on the canvas, we can see the strokes of the artist, parallel to those in Abstract Expressionism.
Silencio de Invierno, by Jorge Abot (2008)
Technique: painting on canvas / Measures: 160 x 160 cm
His work has a certain zen spirituality, similar to those in Kazuya Sakai's, although in the painting "Madero de Enero" we can see what seems a crucifix, like a Christian aura casted on the image. Maybe it's his way of demonstrating that art (according to Abot) still retains a certain holiness, which calls for respect and distance in the visitors.

Technique: painting on canvas / Measuress: 193 x 159 cm
The daughter, Natalia Abot Glenz, abandons the canvas to create dynamic forms that occupy the room. It's like 2D is not enough to express herself or, maybe, as an architect, she prefers working with space. Unlike her father's, her work allows freedom of movement for visitors and, in her own words, the chance to "think sculptures in a public scale".

This exhibition displays the clear generational differences between both artists while offering a space of comfortable and familiar dialogue between them.
