By Henry Ballate.
We are perpetually surrounded by space, we in habit it, yet we rarely ever think about it.
We might be briefly reminded when we see a majestic landscape, or when we come home again after a long day.
Ernesto Gutierrez paintings are affected by its surroundings and suggest an intuitive under standing of space:
the essence of the landscape is sought after, and the superfluous details are discarded. With in the picture plane any
thing is possible. It becomes like a window; and in our minds, we can be any size at all and imagine ourselves with in the space the artist has created.
“My paintings share the motivation to create my own illogical space high lighting the ambiguities and the
absurd.” Ernesto explains.
Amazingly, every empty space in the composition is full of purpose, with a suggestion of landscape.
The result is a peaceful Endless Space which embraces the spiritual.
