Artist Bio:
Born in Santiago Chile in 1953, Eduardo Guelfenbein is a Chilean artist based in Paris. Guelfenbein graduated from the Accademia delle Belle Arti, Brera, Milan, Italy. Eduardo Guelfenbeinís aesthetic is inspired by his nomadic lifestyle and sensibilities. After travelling through Italy and Lake Varese, the artist settled in Paris where he paints his thick, expressive and colourful pieces enriched with the energy of South America. Loyal to the abstract genre, Eduardo Guelfenbein displays an overflowing zeal with his fluid lines and swirls filled with intense, yet controlled, energy. Through his soulful expression of liquid abstractions, the thick acrylic textured canvases of Guelfenbein reveal a process of discovery of infinite patterns and never-ending forms that much resemble a cosmic creation. Guelfenbein aims to create interesting acrylic texture, where light refracts strongly, with contrasting carved gestural strokes, and mostly, a full colour palette. Potentially, the liquid transformations and twisting patterns are infinite. The hills and valleys morphed by the thickness of the paint, much like a cosmic creation, generate different feelings and never-ending forms. Dominated by a commanding presence of bold strokes and riveting colour tones, Guelfenbeinís work is an energetic blend of both pictorial and sculptural properties. In fiery tones of red, orange and blue, Guelfenbeinís works evoke a sense of power and trepidation shrouded in the vitality of thickly applied colour strokes. Guelfenbein has held numerous successful exhibitions around the world from Europe, America, Asia and Australia with a personal show in 1997 at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Santiago, Chile.

Artist Statement:
My soul has instant expression in my latest liquid abstractions.
The creative emotional satisfaction brought by the liquid technique,
is always a new experience, much is a process of discovery,
whilst carving through thick textured acrylic, and letting myself flow with music,
the joys of the inner child emerge whilst brushed lines travel across the canvas, morphologically binding colors.
Technically I have evolved over the years, but my aim today is to create interesting acrylic texture,
where light refracts strongly, with contrasting carved gestual strokes, and mostly, a full color palettte.
Potentially the liquid transformations and twisting patterns are infinite, much like a cosmic creation,
generating different feelings and never-ending forms.
 Whilst as a figurative painter, I was painting abstractions within the figure, today freed from the silhouettes,
 the liquid abstractions create in me the same emotional feelings of Love, Beauty, Truth and Goodness,
 infinite emotions that have no limit, like an abstract painting open to the imagination.
