Bio

Self-taught artist, whose inspiration is born from working with materials on which he establishes an aesthetic reflection understood in the Hegelian sense: beauty of form; Regularity, symmetry and harmony. Unlike the other authors who inspired the twentieth century, Cuétara approaches and includes technology in his work. It fuses the sensuality of the fabrics manipulated giving them light and establishing historical bridges between the povera gestuality and the minimalist aesthetic.
His proposal does not make any judgments about its surroundings and its environment, nor pretend to alter or reproduce it, it is limited to objectivity, to the search for the expressiveness of matter itself, to the entropic concept of order, in the face of disorder and noise. As a nineteenth-century craftsman, Cuétara uses the naked canvas, through its manipulation and observation of its specific qualities, not to cover it with pigments or images, but to express itself.
The fabric, the fold, and the light, are the keys of his language. For Cuétara the fold in itself, is a key element in the construction and composition of his paintings. It is something more – much more – than a mere formal resource, it represents above all a space of possibilities: those of housing both, matter and soul, and above all the plasticity, through the folds and wrinkles of the Canvas, of the permanence of the artist in his own work. The interstice, the cavity becomes the place where the desire to endure in the memory of time and men is fulfilled. The eternal eagerness of
the creator.
