Greg Dzurita
"Untitled"

27.11.23 01.12.23

Greg Dzurita is a self-taught abstract artist whose work explores a balance between architecture and mid-century modern design, creating minimal studies in color and shape composition. After Greg did his first residency in Terlingua, Texas (which he appreciated as extremely enriching and filled with a creative energy), he came to ´ace to continue exploring his artistic projects.

ARTIST STATEMENT

My artwork is developed using a minimalistic, structural approach to geometric abstraction. I explore architectural form, earth toned palettes, and textures through acrylic paint, clay, and pumice. Whether it’s an observable condition of everyday life, or an architectural detail of something more obscure, these works are my way of communicating to the viewer how I see the world around me.

By combining constructivist aesthetics with minimalistic three-dimensional elements, I invite viewers to explore different options on how to perceive the direction in which my work moves. I intentionally avoid titles of my work, as I believe this allows viewers to engage on a more personal level and form their own interpretations. New perspectives are inherently unique to each and every viewer, and hearing these perceptions is one of the most rewarding things about creating my work.

Echoes of Existence: Artistic Reflections on Humanity, Nature, and Identity

In the last ‘ aceNITE of 2023 we are honored to present the diverse and compelling works of four talented artists: ARKO/Korean residency fellows Jungsuh Sue Lim and Hana Yoo, Open Buenos Aires Prize & Residence scholarship Zerre (Venezuela) and artist in residence Greg Zurita (USA). Each artist brings a unique perspective and artistic approach, collectively engaging with themes ranging from loss and mortality to architectural abstraction, reflections on identity, and the evolving relationship between humanity and artificial intelligence.

Yoo’s work offers a powerful commentary on environmental activism, indigenous rights, and the enduring bond between humanity and nature. Through the narrative of Tanu, a mystical being navigating landscapes threatened by extractivism, YOO confronts urgent ecological concerns while honoring the resilience of indigenous communities and their fight for environmental justice.

Lim’s poignant exploration of loss and mortality resonates deeply, drawing from personal experiences to confront the complexities of farewells and the emotions that accompany them. Through her immersive installation performance “Here and There, Together,” Lim invites viewers to participate in a reinterpreted ceremony for beloved souls, encouraging collective reflection and connection.

Zerre’s thought-provoking series, “Metahumans,” challenges conventional notions of identity and reality in the digital age. Through graphic prints on unconventional supports and the use of photolithography techniques, Zerre blurs the boundaries between human and artificial intelligence, inviting viewers to question the nature of perception and existence in an increasingly technologically mediated world

Zurita’s minimalist yet evocative artworks offer a contemplative exploration of architectural form and texture. Using earth-toned palettes and a structural approach to geometric abstraction, Zurita invites viewers to engage with the subtle nuances of everyday life, encouraging personal interpretations and new perspectives on the world around us.

Together, these four artists offer a rich tapestry of perspectives, inviting viewers to contemplate the complexities of the human experience, the environment, and the intersections between art, technology, and identity.

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.
