A solo show dedicated to Dominican artist Hulda Guzman, “A Different Architecture” presents conceptual and physical structures recreating the existing reality, bearing the weight of a mythical unknown.
Guzman’s works are usually energetic painting of interior scenes depicted with a great eye for detail. The pieces presented at Dio Horia address the multi-layered reality of nature and the contradictions that surrounds it: wood plays a leading role with its fibrous structural tissue speaking of past and memory. Using wood as a tool – both as a tree in its primary state or a material in architecture – she grasps its power to portraying life.
