Curator’s Voice Art Projects. From Aug14th through 28th, 2010.
Frank Chinea “Pacaso” is a late neo-romantic artist of the 21st century. He recovers the apocalyptic spirit of those times, stressing his self-observation and his inner experience into his works; he projects the muses and the ghosts of his soul.
Black scenarios and stormy views populate his paintings. Diluted figures and dislocated entities emerge from the dark scenarios as his way of presenting his subconscious world. Expressionistic traits and contorted brushstrokes over thick impasto define his dramatic approach to painting.
His works, in the traditions of William Blake or Arnold Böcklin, present heroic futures in abyssal situations. They stand as shadows and specters of gloomy allure. An ethereal background of indecipherable universe sets as a dream like imaginary in which the artist lives. “Pacaso” launches angels and demons of an artificial paradise of life and death. He deeps with an excruciating awareness into his psyche and the abyss of his unconscious. – Milagros Bello, show curator.
