The Argentinian painter Osvaldo Bacman understands colour as the expression of a bond, a relationship of concomitance. In his abstract geometrical compositions, he removes the manual gesture to emphasize perceptual quality optics,
he uses as constants, repeat operations, rotation, and distortion. Bacman’s optical illusions are creating shapes and colours of unstable appearance, which become background and vice versa or that seem to compose new figures or appear to move.
Influenced by Cubism and Constructivism, Bacman employes pulsating colours and tight geometric formulations to express his embrace of urban living. Exhibiting all over Europe and Argentina, Osvaldo Bacman is recognized as one of the most influential Latin American artists for his unique style and vision.
Osvaldo Bacman was born in La Plata,Argentina, where he attended The Academy of Fine Arts of the National University of La Plata. The visual artist, who exhibited in Vienna, Paris, Miami,
and NYC, is currently living in Cologne, Germany. His original artworks are presented in private and public collections in Argentina, Germany, the US, and the Art Collection of the Musée D’Art Contemporain Mézieres-en-Brenne in France.
Climate Change – Our Ressouces – Burning for Beef?
Osvaldo Bacman: “The Amazon rainforest is going up in flames. The forests are burning to clear them, making way for more and more pastureland. On the other hand, it is our high demand for beef that is responsible for the burning forests. My new series, RED (Fire), BLUE (Flood), YELLOW (Drought/ Desert), GREEN (Rainforest) refers to the subject of climate change and the effects.
Each painting accompanied by another is seen as part of or within a larger sequence, to generate feelings, climate, or an atmosphere of connections open to interpretation.”
