Guillermo Fornes at The Chapel “Origen”

art exhibition - guillermo fornes at the chapel “origen”

As an initial reference to an approximation of the work of Guillermo Fornes, in the words of the critic Fernando Castro Flores:

“His work is built on two pillars, the creation of speech based on synthesis and its gestural work, transmitting in its different shades a journey of emotion, innovation and experimentation in the creative process.”

“Undoubtedly, the “sedimentary” paintings of Guillermo Fornes are an incarnation from our landscape to the interior, from the colossal to the intimate, reconciling that rare intermediate place where you can manifest the sublime. The news of the sublime, appointed by Barnett Newman. “

“An archetypal Guillermo Fornes oeuvre reveals an extraordinary poetry, we are trapped in the value of it’s paradox, the overwhelming lightness and fascinating forms bring us closer to the sublime. “All the great works”, observes John Berger, ” the works that enslave us forever, are close to what inspired them”.  It is difficult to talk about the pleasures and recondite harmonies of those experiences that we know as intimacy. You have to be prepared to listen to the unfamiliar. Fornes paints the transparent, a seer of what is deeply hidden yet also evident as skin or the air.”

Guillermo Fornes (Bilbao 1964) started his career 30 years ago in London, where he studied Fine Arts at Kings College of Art, collaborated with the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao and worked with the Bilbao-Arte Foundation. His work has been exhibited at galleries in Mexico, England, Germany and Spain. His work can be found worldwide in public and private collections.
