ARTURO LUZ (B. 1926)

Untitled (Still Life)


Enamel on canvas

61 x 101 cm (24 x 39 3/4 in)

Quick Overview

A highly significant and exceedingly rare still life from the '60s, this enignmatic painting by National Artist Arturo Luz is a masterly thesis in composition and formal relationships. It contains the most distinguishing marks and painterly techniques that the artist honed in this seminal period, making it his own. Here, thin lines and fluid curves create a familiar still life scene - their tonality and spatial encounters reminiscent of Giorgio Morandi, in this most elegant arrangement of geometricized bottles on a table. Despite its seeming simplicity, there is a palpable air of mystery and mandarin detachment that permeates this painting - a faultless melding of precision and misty atmosphere where Luz draws the viewer’s eye towards the center of the canvas, reducing the visible into the barest, most essential qualities, the complexity of his technique furthermore imbuing an architectural dimension to the work.
