ASTARTE gallery presents “Transfers”, a group of works by Jorge Varas [Madrid, 1964] with which he puts forward his will of finding the purity and the essence of shapes. A will of unsheathe until the limit of skin- the woody and old wooden skin- the strong and flexible body of Madame Geometry.
In this first exhibition of Jorge Varas at Astarte, apart from his well known vertical sculptures, vaguely arquitectural, we can find works of the “Reflections” serie. These, as described in the catalogue by Francisco Carpio, are conceived as still lifes and/or structural landscapes, atavistic constructions in which far-off civilizations might have inhabited. There are also works from “the skin the life”responding to a different volume mechanics, in which what used to be vertical turns into-by space´s magic- something purely horizontal, like an esentially geometrical trace.
Wood is one of his more often used materials, but he also shows a serie of metal works [aluminum and brass]. His drawings are like graphic preludes that already contain and disclose the spatial,formal and mental games in his works.
