Jaime Gili

London, UK


Artist’s Statement

Gili has developed a body of work that represents a highly distinctive point of convergence between a specific inherited European modernism interlaced with Venezuela’s past particular branch of modernism. Aware that abstract painting cannot place current reality as such on to the canvas –for instance, the reality of protests and the present disintegration of democracy in Venezuela– in his recent works Gili takes on these issues through their tempo and the painting’s own slow process of becoming. Thus, gradually and looking within its own limitations, Gili’s abstract paintings attempt to bridge the voids of time and space, the final message being one of a positive future.
