Through Jan 2010.
Milton Becerra has an original, distinctive and personal language, having a truly surprising power of renewal and revival: consistent with his artistic conviction, his own manner of assuming artistic creation.
The works gathered in this exhibition share this exceptional condition. Reference to myths of Wayúu ethnicity, the elements of natural landscape and the manifestation of a geometric rationalism coexist in them without conflict, articulated under the principles of harmony and proportion.
Milton Becerra is probably the most fruitful and prolific Venezuelan plastic artist of his generation. His vast production comprises practically all the artistic means and procedures used in worldwide contemporary plastic research.
His rock assemblies on a plane surface, observed through a scheme of dense knots, carried out by means of the adaptation of a metric and constructivist disposition, change these works into a sort of homage to kinetics, conceived by the use of icons and gestures belonging to his own artistic discourse, as are the rocks, ropes and knots. Indeed, in these works – as in all of Becerra’s artistic works – the common denominator seems to be the precise domain of space and its expression in aesthetic, poetic and symbolic terms” – Adolfo Wilson.
