Carlos Gómez Centurión – Jason Hicklin - Domenico Pugliese

Vast landscapes engulf the artists as they create on-site dramatic and atmospheric photographs, paintings and drawings

Carlos Gómez Centurión is an Argentinean artist who was raised at the feet of the Andes. The mountains have become part of his essence. From his studio windows he can witness the immensity of the landscape, the ever-changing colours of the mountains and the valley below. On mules and with a team of professionals of diverse disciplines including a filmmaker, a poet and geologists, Carlos has gone up the Colorado River to develop an artistic multidisciplinary project. He stretches the canvases on the salt lake, and accompanied by the wind, sun and stars, he conveys the vastness of the territory. The premise is to paint the site, immersed in the site. The hills have a will of their own. The winds, the unbearable heat, the intense cold, the dryness of the air, become the beating pulse of the mountain. Minerals and paint also become part of the work, translating with ochre, brown, gold, blue and green the richness of the mountain
