Feel with the eyes

06.10.10 03.11.10

As a closing of the project that Andrew Donohoe carried out during his residence in ´ace, it is exhibited in the Polyglot Room Feeling with the eyes.

This new series of engravings show us images of different elements of the urban environment that include surface textures, pavement, stones and other diverse objects that register the marks and patina of time and oxidation. Some shapes are repeated: organic spirals, worn marble, fluted outlines in horizontal lines, round and triangular matrices that create strong structural geometric shapes. The representation of tactile textured images in addition to the dialogue between geometric and organic forms are an expression of the artist’s marked pleasure.

FEEL WITH THE EYES (by Andrew Donohoe)

The development process of this work was a creative adventure of pure pleasure. All the images were collected in places that interested me and aroused a certain mystery during a visit to Buenos Aires the previous year. The city is, for me, like an exotic jungle full of plants and insects, both strange and beautiful, that each time I visit offers something more to discover.

The images obtained belong to different elements of the environment that I found in one of my favorite places that I visited often and were collected almost as a child can collect butterflies or insects of an unusual color. These images include the textures of the surfaces under my feet, pavement, stones and other diverse objects that register the time stamps, oxidation, a patina that evolves with the pass of the time.

The Latin America's Paris

Buenos Aires is Argentine Republic's capital city. With 15,000,000 inhabitants, it is one of the largest cities in Latin America and one of the 10 most populous urban centers in the world. Its cosmopolitan and urban character vibrates to the rhythm of a great cultural offer that includes monuments, churches, museums, art galleries, opera, music and theaters; squares, parks and gardens with old groves; characteristic neighborhoods; large shopping centers and fairs. Here we also find a very good lodging facilities, with accommodation ranging from hostels to five-star hotels of the main international chains. Buenos Aires also show off about its variety of restaurants with all the cuisines of the world, as well as to have cafes and flower kiosks on every corner.

A neighborhood founded on the Jesuit farms in the 17th century

We are located in Colegiales neighborhood where the tree-lined streets, some of which still have their original cobblestones, invite you to walk. Although the apartment buildings advance, low houses still predominate. It is a district of the city where about 20 TV production companies, design studios, artist workshops and the Rock&Pop radio have been located. The neighborhood also has six squares, one of which pays homage to Mafalda, the Flea Market, shops, restaurants and cafes like its neighboring Barrios de Palermo and Belgrano, with which it limits.
