Open Tales” by Oscar Rojas Contreras (Toluca-Mexico, 1986) is composed of works whose fulcrum is the theme of the landscape declined, however, in a dimension that ranges between reality, history, classicism, where color and the originality of the representation are the protagonists. In this case our mind is projected into an “other” dimension, both in the very small format paintings and in the great works that make us fluctuate between running horses and battles, between islands and sirens, between angels and temptations. The artist metabolizes the stimuli from ancient times to rework them in a tumultuous painting, on the ridge between figuration and abstraction. A vast imaginary emerges, from the dynamism of Tintoretto to the atmospheres of Turner. (Cristiana Campanini, Cairo Award 2019). The pictorial moment made up of knowledge and memory is thus transformed into a complex narrative, however leaving us free interpretation and open imagination.
