Work available at ARTBO 2018:
Alberto Lezaca’s work questions the notions of materiality, reality, simulacrum and representation. His practice explores the intersections between virtuality and physical matter, using media such as painting, video, computer generated images, sculpture and installation.
Alberto Lezaca’s painting of recent years has been dedicated to representing sculptures and/or installations which, without having been carried out, we recognize as his authorship. In turn, his sculptures and installations, without ever having been painted, are familiar to us through his painting. His practice is a continuous process of projection in the architectural sense, it uses representation to imagine what may be. This constant oscillation between one medium and another and the continuous exercise of imagining one another, result in the interpenetration of both media in his recent work.
