Born in 1963 - Argentina
biography under completion
Felix invites us to follow him and his universe. His technique is a clever fusion of digital skill and artistic inspiration from varied topics. He reworks digitally the images he chooses, major surgery for some of his characters, brand new creation for others. He works long hours on the reconstruction process, which shows his creativity in full. In a second stage he can provide his brush strokes through more traditional techniques. All this is done on a carefully selected format: photographic paper, collage on wood or Dibond. Some viewers will concentrate on the aesthetic surface of his work. Some others will let themselves go by the artist, like Alice through the looking glass.
«The work of the plastic artist, Felix Aberasturi shakes us because of his power of connection with the collective unconscious. Beyond the immense beauty of topics and colours, each created character, every human figure, seems to be part of our family.
Retro and futuristic at the same time, this oneiric architecture leaves a « deja vu » flavour, as when we hear a melody for the first time and we have the impression that someone composed it for us.»
Oscar Sisto, actor and director
«The series of archetypes comes after a certain path and evolution is clear. My first experience with the work of Aberasturi was with the series consecrated to Jorge Luis Borges, where he was able to recreate and interpret accurately the world of the writer or his writing. In Golem, Borges tells us that a name is the archetype of an object. He says that in the letters of the word rose there is a rose, and all the Nile is in the word Nile. I would say (beyond Cratyle and Plato, who never spoke of archetypes but outlined his concept) that Aberasturi´s archetypes dwell in his work and Aberasturi is in all his archetypes, his reality and his shadow, his own secret, which undoubtedly also leads the spectator to dream.»
Eduardo Carballido, curator of the exhibition in the Argentinian Embassy
