Transicional

27.01.20 21.02.20

Caroline Watson is an artist whose multicultural experiences and artistic inspiration come from travels to Mexico, Canada, Uganda, and parts of the Caribbean. The intercultural exchanges that have most influenced her artwork have been with the remote villages of Sembabule, Nebbi, and Pakwach in Uganda, Africa.

She primarily uses acrylics and concrete, to give her abstract paintings a unique tactile quality. She works intuitively to explore color, movement, form and layering elements. Each painting is an illustration of experiences, time and the exploration of a solitary moment.

Caroline Watson, artist in residence sub30, presented her work  Transitional at the aceNITE on February 19, a work that brings together paintings and small sculptures with materials found in the city.

Transitional (by Caroline Watson) 

I want to tell a story influenced by the environment and culture around me.
I do not want to overly constrain the direction of the project but allow the project to evolve and grow during my stay.
I will continue an emphasis on the faces and figures and experiment with incorporating a variety of colors and tones into the work.

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.
