LUX LINDNER (ARGENTINA)

Argentinian artist Lux Lindner

Lux Lindner was born in 1966 in Argentina. He lives and works in Buenos Aires.

The artist creates series of smaller acrylic panels. Alongside these paintings, he presents his curt yet poetical statements - statements such as: "A constant view point (the horizon) is maintained."

Lux Lindner is represented by Galerie Lilian Rodriguez in Montreal and has shown extensively in Argentina.

Lux Lindner's art grows from his sensibility for nature and the environment. While informed by philosophical introspection, it also participates playfully in the realm of the concrete.

Statement on the work for the 3rd Biennale de Montréal 2002, par Lux Lindner

"1. My work deals with Argentinean historical painting of the 19th century. The space I produced is heterogeneous and often Euclidian. The events are reorganized and staged up to exhaustion. I intend to work with a chronology and categories, for instance: the world history of art and also the history of South America and its specific history of art. Approaching South America, to say that the situation of those countries is unconceivable has now become 'folklore'.

2. With those paintings, I intend to work on a single point of view: Argentina. It is a space full of intersections, exchanges, attractions and repulsions. Even with those contradictions, this space is still a space and the one of my work. Actually, my work deals with the fraudulent clash of the project that states that modern Argentina can live without belief of any kind such as Buddha, Allah, and Christ in who we could rest.

3. The lines of my paintings are crevices within time blocks that tend to freezing; a situation probably caused by the effects of the Arctic winter its glaciers drifting on the ocean.

4. And I hang about a tricky world that warms up."
