Foto del artista plástico Diego Díaz

 

In Diego Díaz’s plastic work, time lacks present. His papers, canvases, bars and drawings are postcards taken before the journey. In each piece the light is parasitic on the shadow. The viewer sees the rust in a screw that goes through a canvas and understands that it is a sign of the future. The past, on the other hand, is reflected in the spectator’s face, a fortuitous mirror of a portrait in graphite that is stored in the memory. Diego Díaz refuses time; his technique considers drawing, painting and sculpture in a classic and realistic way, as well as installation and ready-made. He is a contemporary artist born in another age of the world. His work is organic: it overflows the initial support, surrenders to light, and explores the infinite possibilities of space. For more than a decade, Diego Díaz’s creative proposal has had the dispensation of galleries and collectors, and has been gaining presence in the international art scene.
