Hugo Bastidas's avatar Hugo Bastidas

Artworks address the joy and wonder of being here. In a recent passage from "Autobiography as Critique" Howard Mccalebb wrote: [An important Latin American born artist showing an interest in 1980's Representational Painting is Hugo X Bastidas (born 1956) in QuitoEcuador). He is a United States citizen and lives and works in New York. His paintings can be appreciated as a second generation of the rebirth of representation painting in the late 20th Century, in the United States. But unlike the paintings of Tansey, etc, these quasi-conceptual monochrome artworks generally do not critique art theory - or challenge art world dogma. Bastidas joins the mission to rethink representation, and to look more closely at the content of representational modes of expression, to exploit the language of the embedded idea within the pictorial structure itself. His subjects vary from social and or political concerns, to complex pictures that conflicted visual perception against cerebral comprehension.]
