• The Abstract Language of Carolina Guillermet

    Before talking about the Swiss-Costa Rican artist Carolina Guillermet (1979)

    and her proposals in development, it seems appropriate to take a look at the universe
    of abstraction for a moment, a tendency that transformed the vision of the world
    through art. In the first place, I turn to Kathleen Hall, a student of this movement
    who, referring to the emergence of Abstract Art at the end of the 19th century and
    especially to the founding fathers of the movement, Wassily Kandinsky, Frantisek
    Kupka, Piet Mondrian and Kazimer Malevich, expresses that these artists felt
    themselves as the messengers of a metaphysical world and communicating this
    knowledge became the goal of their art. The language with which these artists
    translated their vision of that world was abstraction: "they were scribes who painted
    what could not be said with words”. 1

    El encuentro con este "soñador'' fue posible gracias a los avances de la tecnología, que permitió esta grata conversación con un hombre que desde la distancia, está más cerca que nunca de su tierra y de promover iniciativas que para muchos son impensables en contextos abrumados por la crisis.
