Sergio Paez Calvo (Bogotá / Colombia)


Sergio Paez is a plastic artist graduated from Universidad Nacional of Colombia. He was also selected as one of the winning artists of the grant R.A.R.O. and the Colombian Embassy in Argentina offered. In his work Sergio constantly seeks to rethink his ways of doing, having as meeting points failure, irony, humor and criticism of some fixed and instituted ideas about art. He was perhaps one of the residents who took the most advantage of the itinerant character of R.A.R.O. as he worked in 5 different ateliers during the three months of his stay in Buenos Aires. His first weeks of residency were spent at Palacio México in Hernán Rojo's atelier, together, they experimented with different materials for his sculptural creation, after that,  he went on to work in painting with Gustavo Amenedo and then at Palmira Estudios with Julián Pesce, to close this process, during the last weeks of his stay, he visited Casa Omar with the accompaniment of Christian Riffel. At the end of his residency his work was shown at Espacio Cavallero. The exhibiton had the curatorship of Carlos Herrera.

ENCARNADURA


camina como los burros
desesperadamente / aunque fijo el deseo
brillo en los ojos de un río decaído
la locura de un pasillo infinito
el rostro dulce
la pátina es más suave que en las masculinas
se cicatriza cuando se puede
tierras, rojizos, carmín, verdes
y la capacidad al extremo de la piel
barniz especial para destacar algunas zonas
la humedad que existe en la boca
y otra vez los ojos
trabajo en una encarnadura clara
imagen femenina o masculina?
barro y sal
los músculos y las partes planas
la máquina
y las heridas del proceso al pintar una escultura
extrudir el magma de nuestra tierra
barras / tubos / varillas y distintas secciones perfiladas
pátina oscura para conseguir una figura con fuerza
el rostro / los labios / las cejas / los ojos /
el sello de la imagen y el poder del oficio
como el de un cerdo que escapa de su corral
en brazos se traslada lo anal de la pintura
y en mano la sal que nos suda
