For this series of drawings, I am not looking for preconceived images. I find them through my process of drawing, looking for details and imperceptible traces. It is where I find truth and beauty, more than in tangible and visible things. E. Santiere

 

February 6, 2008, New York, NY - Haim Chanin Fine Arts is pleased to announce Draw In, the first solo exhibition in New York of Argentine artist Eduardo Santiere, on view from February 22 through April 26, 2008. The opening reception will take place on Friday, February 22, 2008, from 6 to 8 PM in presence of the artist. The exhibition will feature approximately twenty works on paper with pencil, color pencil and surface scratches.

 

Eduardo Santiere’s works on paper are characterized by ever-evolving combinations of weightless lines and points of color that are permeated with lyrical motion and joy. At once futuristic visions of cities and urban networks, whimsical organic shapes floating in empty space, starry nights of colors and lines, these abstract “scapes” give us the impression of gazing “through the looking-glass” into distant worlds where time and human beings seem to have disappear.The richness of the palette, the precision of each detail, the intricacy of each line draw us in for endless discoveries, while his paper-scratching technique “gracefully messes up formal distinctions,” creating an “all-but-invisible sculptural relief” as Holland Cotter notes in The New York Times.

 

Born in Buenos Aires, Eduardo Santiere received his MFA in 2003 from the University of Wisconsin at Madison. He has had numerous solo and group exhibitions in Latin America and in the United States, including most recently “Levity: Selections Spring 2007” at the Drawing Center, New York and “Blown Away” at the Krannert Art Museum, IL. His work is represented in major public and private collections internationally.
