_ Juan Carlos Bracho Finalist of the 24th International Graphics Prize Maximo Ramos_Centro Torrente Ballester_El Ferrol_06/09/18


One of the leitmotiv that animate the Juan Carlos Bracho’s work is the reflection on the error as part of any creative process and the transformative possibilities that ideas can experience when being carried into practice. His work, always linked to automated processes, repetitive and to a minimum vocabulary of graphic and chromatic resources, reveals to us this time a drive and a passion for the color that does not leave paradoxical-mind the severity, the rigour and the forcefulness that characterizes the whole of his work.

“Campo de color” is part of the project “Otra vida futura”, work entirely developed in OgamiPress within its line of work in which the graphic is approached from a contemporary perspective linked to the processes

_ Juan Carlos Bracho awarded one of the mentions of the XI prize of Painting La Rural_Centro Cultural la Carolina_Jaén_01/06/18

"The Black" is one of the 100 multipages that compose the project "I Want It All"; Monochromes of 198 x 198 cm elaborated individually gluing between eighty and eight A4 printed with a home printer.

"I want it All" is definitely a round trip-with all the loss and profit that this implies-from the manual to the mechanical; From the analogue to the digital and from the abstract to the concrete and a deep reflection on the color and the mental construction of the landscape from the most radical abstraction. At the end of the day the emotional links we establish with the colors depend on what we project, as happens with the landscape in our memory.

_Ángeles Baños Gallery_ARCOmadrid18_Mantras unpronounceable

The artists selected for this project, Eder Santos (Belo Horizonte, Brazil, 1960), Juan Carlos Bracho (the Line, 1970) and Blanca Gracia (Madrid, 1989), draw a broad generational arc that defines the lines of action of the Gallery Ángeles Baños: Tender Bridges with Portugal and Latin America, the national media careers and betting on emerging artists.

The work of these three artists has a personal and recognizable language. However, his proposals find common points in his reflection on the cultural heritage that defines us as individuals and as a society-religion, myth, landscape-and his works can be interpreted as mantras, Oracio, pleas or hymns of worship That induce the spectator to a state of inner contemplation. Some works that meditate on the beauty of the images stored in our memory, and whose meaning project what we are and how we recognize each other individually and collectively.

In the case of Eder Santos and Juan Carlos Bracho, reaching this state is linked to personal or appropriate rituals, repetitive and mechanical processes, while Blanca Gracia immerses the spectator in a sort of hypnosis induced by echoes and reflections of his own Conscience.

_ Yaima Carrazana in Havana Art Weeken with a specific project in El Estudio Los Carpinteros

In Maison D’Artiste, Loidys Carnero and Yaima Carrazana  establish a dialogue with the work of Piet Mondrian, Theo van Doesburg and the Dutch movement of De Stijl, founded in 1917. Making use of appropriation addresses issues related to integration and autonomy. Each work is part of an investigation in an intimate environment and lifestyle.

In the installation: “De Ligt chair, Heesterveld 28” the artists move to the third floor of the Carpenters ‘ studio in Havana, the kitchen of their studio apartment in Amsterdam, through a reproduction of real scale photography and a chair designed by Gerrit Rietveld. The chair was built by a local carpenter following a Dutch tutorial “do-it-yourself”. Through the gesture of placing a reproduction of the chair “de Ligt” a connection with the functional and the specific context is established.

A Carrazana´s new serie of paintings in oil on canvas show compositions of planes of colors red, yellow, blue, black and grey among which are inserted elements that are part of the domestic environment, like fruits and plants of interior.
