Jorge Cabieses: IGNOTO
November 20 – December 27, 2013
Lucía de la Puente Gallery
Lima, Peru

Jorge Cabieses develops his work in an ongoing exploration new supports, surfaces, images. Intervenes melamine plates and industrial plastic pallets using old lithographs. Transits and appeals primarily to the geometry as a tool for cancellation in some cases and in others, using the same geometry as a single image and thus as solo protagonist.

For some years, the artist has been synthesizing images in geometries, questioning the representation of the image. Often claims the essential, shape and color.

Pure line and chromatic condensation can alienate the sense of replacement, risking of disappointing the spectator. In IGNOTO, Jorge Cabieses, get to know the unknown, connecting these two concepts in his work, the unknown as the exploration of new surfaces, and knowledge, which is the result of its own process.
