A painting by Argentina Zamora will feature a dynamic composition that has come to life in a spontaneous pictorial gesture. Consisting of wild and subtle brushstrokes, sometimes dripping sometimes throwing the paint onto the canvas. A flamboyant, often contrasting, use of colour is what characterizes her work. The final outcome is a magical reality wherein memory and present, ficton and reality lock on to each other, blurring ‘the reading’ of the painting, stimulating the viewer’s imagination, continuously offering new discoveries by superposing different ‘story lines’.
