Such is my horizon | Alfredo Prior

Such is my horizon | Alfredo Prior

An exhibition on Alfredo Prior opened in Buenos Aires, city in which I live in; and I thought to write something about him. Although I don’t have much information on his work, I still wanted to write about him in the blog.

Prior doesn’t consider figurative painting opposed to abstraction; and that’s why his paintings are in that border of representation. He even says that his figurative paintings are too abstract and vice versa.

I already knew Prior for his paintings of bears, rabbits and all different kinds of fable animals painted with dull and dark tones… in a mix between La Fontaine and caravaggian tenebrism: but I just saw Such is my horizon and it amazed me. Bright colors are mixed one another in a way I’ve never seen. If you ask me… there I see a forest, of course, after a hypothetical dose of LSD.

We also see in the painting Prior influenced by Japanese art. On one hand, we see what may seem kanji characters in black in the left half of the composition; while in the right, more on the centre, we see a figure like Confucius or Lao Tzu.

I find the painting amazing because of the colors and how they are being used. Like a hybrid between JMW Turner and Warhol’s pop art.

  1. HTC’s embellishments don’t actually matter, though, because the most important thing it did to the new One was give you complete control over your software design.

  2. Other rumors say that the curved edge will be the only available option, while others believe that Samsung will continue to bring the standard flat screen and a double-edged variant like the Note Edge and Galaxy S6 Edge.
