Juan Ariño

Room D, Room E

In this painting show curated by Carmen Giménez, the renowned museum, catalogue and exhibition designer Juan Ariño presents works that occupy the borderline area between abstraction and figuration, representing not a particular landscape but the structure common to all landscapes.

Juan Ariño (b. Madrid, 1945), the renowned museum, catalogue and exhibition designer, invites us to contemplate paintings that hover between abstraction and figuration, representing not a particular landscape but the structure common to all landscapes, in a new show curated by Carmen Giménez.

Grouped in series—Homenaje a Rikyū, Chinos, Horizontes, Shojis, Ultramar, Hespérides, etc.—his works also betray the constant influence of the great masters of both Western and Eastern painting. Rikyū, a key figure in both the art and life of Juan Ariño, is present in many of the pieces in this exhibition, a fact that has more to do with the exercise of sensibility than with a professional activity, where space—or, better said, the poetics of space—becomes the essence of art and Japanese Zen architecture.
